Stellar nucleosynthesis modeling studies would significantly benefit from the use of fully traceable, documented and unbiased nuclear data. The nuclear industry standard Evaluated Nuclear Data File (ENDF) libraries contain extensive collections of reaction data sets relevant to astrophysics. For the first time rapid-and slow-neutron capture, r- and s-process, respectively, abundances were computed from ENDF/B-VIII.0 and TENDL-2015 libraries and compared with available data. The current results highlight mutually beneficial relations between nuclear industry and nuclear astrophysics data developments.
