Show how the sausage is made!

Wurst is a python package for linking and modifying industrial ecology models, with a focus on sparse matrices in life cycle assessment. It provides the following:

  • Helper functions to filter activities and exchanges
  • Helper functions to link exchanges
  • Transformation functions to change markets, change input efficiencies, and change emissions
  • Data IO with Brightway2
  • Logging framework and a log browser

See also the separate wurst examples repository.


Wurst can be installed in its development version using Anaconda. First, follow the Brightway2 installation instructions. Then, in the same environment as Brightway, do the following:

conda install -c cmutel -c conda-forge -c konstantinstadler country_converter constructive_geometries
pip install


BSD 2-clause license. Contributions are welcome!


  • Chris Mutel
  • Brian Cox


  • Review BW2 IO code to make sure all needed fields are present in newly-created and modified databases
  • Parameterized exchanges (e.g. electricity sector)
  • Check logging on all transformation functions
  • Log browser web app
  • Fill out geo linking tests
