Great news: This new version mainly includes a notable number of improvements and bug fixes which ensure that openLCA also runs properly on Linux and macOS. More technically-oriented users can learn more by reading about these improvements on the openLCA GitHub page.

As an extra feature, the ‘general information’ tab of a process now shows images.  These images – for example flowcharts – support the information given in the process description and were previously linked in the ‘modeling and validation’ tab. Additionally, the map view in the results tab has been further enhanced.

Furthermore, openLCA now includes an experimental flow mapping tool. With ist help, it is possible to create flow mappings for imports and replacements of flows in a database. The development of different features of this tool was supported by DLR, FZJ and US EPA.
