I am using OpenLCA to make a life cycle analysis of a Power to Gas system. I already created a Process and Product System for a reactor that takes some gases as inputs and outputs other gases and I was able to view the report for its impacts by creating a new Project. I also created another Process and Product System for the construction of this same reactor, where I have some metals and some electricity as inputs and as outputs some scrap and the reactor itself for which I created a Flow.

I would like to know, if it is possible to include the Product System of the construction and its impacts in the other Project so that I have a global impacts assessment.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Amine, I guess you could just connect the processes from which you built the product systems via output flows? ... you're building the product system from two processes. Let's assume:

Process 1 has an output flow 1

Process 2 has an output flow 2

... simply create a new process in which output flow 1 and output flow 2 are inputs and build a product system from the process.

Well, you can call it something like 'total impact of XXX' ... of course this depends on what quantitative reference you chose and what makes sense considering your model in general.
