The USDA LCA Commons has added additional functionality and new Life Cycle Inventory (LCI) datasets. We have implemented the "product system" feature of the openLCA API. This feature allows users to navigate through and download entire product systems which have been submitted to the LCA Commons.
The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and National Agricultural Library (NAL), with assistance from the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL), have released a new version of the U.S. Life Cycle Inventory Database (USLCI). This latest version contains improvements to the database’s usability and the addition of several new datasets.
