Exchanges with Nature tab

The elementary flows are the core of Earhtster's calculations that mostly happen behind the scenes.

The Exchanges with Nature tab lets you edit the list of elementary flows that have a direct onsite impact on nature, i.e., your product's or service's direct emissions.

As with processes, you can edit the values directly here and immediately see the effects on your cycle.

Info tab

The Info tab lets you edit data about your process. The drawer will adapt to the type of process you have selected.

In the description, you can record any assumptions regarding this process, for example, notes on why you selected it, how you gathered the value for it, any conversions, etc.

You can also use action buttons to perform the most common actions, like swapping with other processes from the database or deleting a process.
