Welcome to this tutorial for the LCA as Code's IDE (Integrated Development Environment), a enhanced editor developed by Kleis Technology that will enable you to scale and maintain your Life Cycle Analysis data.

The goal of this tutorial is to walk you through the basic concepts of the language and the editor. By the end of the tutorial, you will know how to:

  • Implement LCA models using LCA as Code
  • Assess these models against external datasets to compute actual impact assessments
  • Import and export your datasets and results into and out of the tool.

Though each chapter presents an individual concept and can be read individually when you are looking to do something specific, we recommend reading this tutorial in-order. Feel free to copy, run and edit the presented examples!
