In collaboration, Environmental Protection Agency, University of Washington, and NAL have developed a tool that converts unit process data formatted in a specific excel template into openLCA JavaScript Object Notation for linking data (JSON-LD) format.

Currently, data submitters are asked to edit their unit process data in openLCA before submitting to the LCA Commons. They must import unit process data developed in another tool or manually build unit processes in openLCA. With this tool, researchers or practitioners that use excel, can format their data in this excel template and submit it to the LCA Commons through the submission application. This tool and instructions can be found in the Agricultural Data and Tools Catalog.
