Hi, I am currently using ecoinvent 3.7 cutoff database.

By using the GLO electricity mix the water consumption is reduced by 400% due to the CO hydro run of river electricity production. If I change the electricity mix to German in other products to compare this influences the whole water consumption. I think this might be an error? How is the electricity producing this amount of water?

I solved the problem. The impacts for water, turbine use, unspecified CO are missing. Therefore the water Output benefits the water consumption. I am not aware if this problem still occurs in ecoinven 3.8.
