hello, I'm myeongjukim

I'm using ecoinvent database and I can't find the product flow for the chemicals I want, how can I replace it? And if I want to replace it with another chemical, what criteria should I use (chemical, organic flow)?

elementary flow or product flow? ecoinvent is quite comprehensive but by far not complete, so it is well possible that you do not find exactly what you need -> you can use a proxy (chemicals, organic, e.g, if you are looking for an organic chemical), or model yourself of course, if you have access to some details regarding production, for a product flow.

Hope this helps,

Andreas
