Proud to announce that we relased today openLCA 1.7 as beta, on the openLCA download page, with many improvements and new features. One major point: Waste can now be modelled following the direction of the physical flow, a process creating waste can have waste on the output side, a waste treatment process can have it on on the input side. The collaboration server was largely extended and is now a powerful tool for creating consistent databases and LCA models in teams. We also have a new openLCA1.7_UserManual.
