We have updated the GaBi LCI databases in Umberto to the GaBi Service Pack 39. Among others, the database update includes two new extension databases:

  • Extension database IXb: End of life (Contains 59 processes for disposal, recycling, dynamic process models)
  • Extension database XXII: Carbon Composites (Contains 137 processes based on industry data, 58 of which are unit processes)

Changes made to the data are described in the Changelog GaBi SP 39 provided by thinkstep.

A full overview of all GaBi databases available in Umberto can be found at: https://www.ifu.com/en/umberto/umberto-gabi-databases/

Users of Umberto with GaBi LCI databases will be provided with information on how to upgrade models in accordance to the new data in the Release Notes.

Users of our software tools Umberto LCA+ have the choice of working with ecoinvent v. 3.5 data or with GaBi LCI data depending on their specific data requirements.

Kind regards,

Rebecca

Dear Reference_engineer,
thank you very much for your question and sorry for the late reply. Unfortunately, we had some technical issues.

The reference flow (also called manual flow) is very important for your calculations, as all calculated values relate to the quantity of the manual flow in order to calculate the material flow model.

Indeed, the reference flow can be more than a “product”. For example, it can also be the annual production volume or a certain maximal output of an emission (emission cap).

You can find further examples in the Umberto User Manual. Therefore, please start Umberto -> choose “Help” in the menu -> Open User Manual -> look for chapter “Identification of Products (Reference Flows)”.

I hope this helps and please don’t hesitate to contact us, if there are any questions left.

Kind regards,

Rebecca

General Umberto NXT CO2 / New year - new Umberto update!
« on: February 08, 2017, 16:17 »
Just with the beginning of 2017 we have released a new Umberto Update on January 26th. So what’s new in Umberto NXT CO2 when you update?

Here you can find a quick overview:

Copy whole models (including net parameters)
  • New functions available in the project explorer to copy and paste whole models.
  • Select a model from the project explorer and use the context menu item 'Copy Model' to copy the desired model including its subnets and net parameters to the Windows clipboard.
  • You can now use the context menu of the 'Models' folder to paste the model from the Windows clipboard to your current or to a new project.

Usability Improvements
  • Result summary views are expanded and result details views are collapsed by default after a calculation.
  • When performing a calculation of a selection, LCIA data of intermediate exchanges will be excluded per default. This can be changed in the 'Options' dialog on the tab 'Calculation'.

Bug fixes
  • Fixed problem with automatic scaling in Windows for high screen resolutions (Ultra HD/4K).
  • Fixed exception when starting Umberto with outdated Model Migration Tool installation files.
  • 'Allocations' grid in the process specification now displays correct basic unit.
  • Process specification now correctly shows 'Reference Flow' in 'Material Type' column instead of 'Good/Bad' for reference flows at system boundaries.

A detailed description how to use the new features can be found in the Release Notes.
We recommend to install the update and always run the latest version.

The latest trial version of Umberto NXT can be obtained from our webpage.

Currently only the license owner receive update notes via e-Mail. If you are working with Umberto and like to receive these e-Mails, just send your name and your e-Mail address to marc.s.loebel@ifu.com

Should there be any questions, please contact the Umberto help desk at support@umberto.de
