Hello, In my thesis, I am comparing the life cycle analysis of an organic cotton baby bodysuit with that of a conventional cotton one. However, I am encountering an issue with the results of the conventional baby bodysuit, as an entire process (Manufacturing_conventional_baby_bodysuit_knitted) is not being displayed. I have already checked the providers, but I have not yet identified the error. Can someone help me with this? Thank you very much!

Hi Daniel,

well then maybe this process does not contribute to impacts? Or is it not at all included in the results? To find this out, you can check the sankey diagram or even better the inventory sheet in the calcultaion, and there the process factors; all processes that are in the calculated system appear there, with a factor. Note that all LCA calculations go "upstream" for products and downstream for waste, so if you have as quantitative reference for your product system a product before this nitted babysuit, the babysuit process is excluded. If that is the case, change the reference product in your product system. Hope this helps!
