I’m trying to understand the EXCEL from calculating a product system, to observe which processes and flows have which magnitude in the environmental impacts from my process built.
Do I understand right, that there just have an “impact” inputs flows (with the connection of a provider), and outputs flows which are “avoided” (and therefore are connectable with a provider)?
What happens with output flows (I ask for all: product, elementary and waste flows) which are not “avoided”. As far as I see in this case there is no possibility to link the flow with a provider, and there isn’t an contribution on the impacts from these flows. Do I see it right, and in this case, how do I have to adapt my in- and outputs to make visible the impacts from the output flows generated from my process?
(I’m using openLCA 1.10.3 and the EF database)
Thanks for any explanation.
