Formatting data to be distributed through the LCA Commons LCI database requires time and effort. If you have developed unit process data that are widely applicable, it might be worthwhile to format and submit it to the LCI database. If your LCI data are for a very specific processes that might not be widely applicable, but the results or methods might be valuable for the domain, the Data and Tools Catalog might be a more appropriate place to put them. Generally, data that represent national, regional, or state level processes might be appropriate for the LCI database.
