Speaker: Rebe Feraldi


The National Renewable Energy Lab, in partnership with the USDA National Agricultural Library, has developed a comprehensive LCI data documentation and publication handbook and implemented a streamlined, transparent, user focused publication workflow. The handbook outlines how to prepare your data for publication on the USLCI, including: metadata descriptors, nomenclature, categorization, and the representation of flows and processes. There is also detailed descriptions on how to use openLCA to prepare your data, and how NREL will support the publication of your work. The USLCI data handbook and publication tools are fully aligned and compliant with the emerging Federal LCA Commons data guidelines.

This webinar will provide an introduction to the USLCI data handbook, how it is to be used, and the value it provides to the USLCI data submitters and the end-users of USLCI data. The webinar will also walk through the publication workflow from a local file to published dataset on using openLCA and the LCA Collaboration Server (repository and version control software developed through a cooperative agreement between USDA and GreenDelta). At the end of the webinar, the user will have a clear understanding of the what, why, and how of LCI data publication on the USLCI, and gain deeper insight into the Federal LCA Commons.
