Converting LCI Data Into CSV Format
A common way LCA practitioners work is to calculate their inventories in Excel and then enter the data manually into SimaPro. If you have ever done this, you know that this is a boring, time-consuming job that may even introduce errors. That is why we offer CSVmaker: an Excel macro that can easily convert LCI data in Excel format into a CSV file that can be imported into SimaPro. CSVmaker is compatible with processes that link to each other and can link to existing data in SimaPro, such as ecoinvent. CSVmaker helps you save time, reduce typos, and spend your energy on the more important aspects of LCA.
