Hi everybody,

where can I check which impacts are assigned to different elementary flows for the LCIA methods ReCiPE or CML?

I have "SULFATE" as an output, leading to zero impacts in any category of the chosen methods and would like to check whether this is correct.

Hello amreibe,

Simply double click on the elementary flow. This will open a tab for that flow.

Then navigate to the "characterization factors" tab in the bottom. Locate either ReCiPe or CML in the "category" column, and see whether the sulfate has an impact within these LCIA schemes.

Good luck

Hello Amrei,

That is absolutely correct. It means that this specific flow has no connected characterization factors.

Good investigation
