Provide a dynamic LCA calculations for the Brightway2 life cycle assessment framework
This package provides a dynamic (i.e. varying in time) LCA calculations package for the Brightway2 life cycle assessment framework.
Temporalis allows to perform dynamic LCA and take into account time in both inventory and impact assessment. It makes use of graph traversal and convolution to solve the inventory and makes it possible to use several types of impact assessment methods, both static and dynamic.
The best way to install Temporalis is by using conda
The safest is to first install brightway2 and within the same conda environment run
pip install bw2temporalis
which will also install all its dependencies
Documentation and examples
The online documentation explain the functioning of the software and how to use it.
The article Temporalis, a generic method for dynamic Life Cycle Assessment (which is unfortunately still under review….) explains very nicely the methodology behind the software. This repo contains the jupyter notebooks with the analysis performed with some nice real usage examples of the software.
