Dears,

I was using simaPro V8 for ny LCA study on sugarcane molasses ethanol production. I was looking for gasoline production in the ecoinvent database to consider as an avoided emission. Could you please help me how can i include this gasoline production process from ecoinnvent database in SimaProV8 please.

Dear Elias, 

 

As stated on the SimaPro  website "The ecoinvent database is integrated in SimaPro (it is included by default, but is optional on request)". ecoinvent data should therefore by default be included in your software unless you requested otherwise. If you purchased SimaPro with ecoinvent and you cannot access the data, please contact the SimaPro support directly. If you purchased SimaPro without ecoinvent, you would need to purchase an ecoinvent license to access ecoinvent data.

 

Best regards,

Lucia Valsasina, Data analyst, ecoinvent

Dear Lucia Valsasina,

thank you for your kind response. I did purchases the ecoinvent database with simapro but i can not access specifically the gasoline fuel process in the data base. I want to know if that is the problem with me or it is not included for all?

Regards

Elias

Dear Elias, 

 

I believe you should not experience problems accessing the data.

Could you please tell me the exact name of the dataset that you would like to access, the geography, the system model you are using, and the version of ecoinvent (e.g. version 3.4). 

 

Thank you.

 

Best regards,
