  • Guidelines for Social Life Cycle Assessment of Products

    Behind the life cycle of a product, from the cradle to the grave, there is a story to tell. Not only about its potential impact on the environment, but as well in terms of social and socio-economic impacts - or potential impacts - of its production and consumption on the workers, the local communities, the consumers, the society and all value ...

  • Perspectives in Life Cycle Impact Assessment

    Perspectives in Life Cycle Impact Assessment: A Structured Approach to Combine Models of the Technosphere, Ecosphere and Valuesphere describes the relationship between subjective and objective elements in Life Cycle Impact Assessment. It suggests a new framework which will allow people to master two of the major problems associated with LCA, ...

  • Environmental Life Cycle Costing

    Presents links to other pillars of sustainability such as life cycle assessment. Illustrates each method with reference to a single example, providing continuity throughout the text.

  • The Computational Structure of Life Cycle Assessment

    Life Cycle assessment (LCA) is a tool for environmental decision-support in relation to products from the cradle to the grave. Until now, more emphasis has been put on the inclusion quantitative models and databases and on the design of guidebooks for applying LCA than on the integrative aspect of combining these models and data. This is a ...

  • Life Cycle Assessment in Industry and Business

    The challenge of our time is the greening of products. Different tools and concepts to support this process have been developed in the past decade. Among others, Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) appears as one of the most instructive management instruments for gaining insight into product-related environmental impacts and for supporting an effective ...

  • Improvement of the life cycle assessment methodology for dwellings

    The aim of this thesis is to improve the environmental life cycle assessment methodology for buildings by incorporating damage to the health of occupants of emissions from building materials and local traffic. It also intends to determine the overall impact reduction by building environmentally improved dwellings. This reduction is referred to as ...

  • Global Life Cycle Impact Assessments of Material Shifts

    Planet Earth is under stress from various environmental factors, increasing the importance of being able to estimate the environmental costs associated with dynamic material shifts. Such shifts are occurring in the electronics industry and the most famous recent example is the introduction of lead-free solders. Global Life Cycle Impact Assessments ...

  • Costing Improved Water Supply Systems for Low-income Communities: A Practical Manual

    This manual and the free downloadable costing tool is the outcome of a project identified by the Water, Sanitation and Health Programme (WSH) of the World Health Organization (WHO) faced with the challenge of costing options for improved access, both to safe drinking water and to adequate sanitation. Although limited in scope to the process of ...

  • Integrated Life-Cycle and Risk Assessment for Industrial Processes

    Environmental engineers, industrial ecologists, hazardous waste managers and other professionals within the environmental field recognize the importance of incorporating elements of risk assessment with life-cycle assessments. ,These analytical tools have become increasingly a part of environmental management practices. But until now this ...

  • Evaluation of Environmental Impacts in Life Cycle Assessment
