  1. 1. Life Cycle Assessment and Decision Making: Theories and Practices

    Författare :Henrikke Baumann; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; life cycle assessment; LCA practice; LCA methodology; LCA modelling; institutionalisation; LCA procedure; life cycle accounting; LCA; systems analysis; decision making;

    Sammanfattning : Life cycle assessment (LCA) has been in use to a varying extent since the late 1960s. The fact that LCA methodology needs further development is a frequently identified barrier to the further application of LCA. Consequently, the literature with suggestions for improving LCA methodology is extensive. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Life cycle assessment in the development of forest products : Contributions to improved methods and practices

    Författare :Gustav Sandin; Magdalena Svanström; Greg Peters; Mats Westin; Annica Pilgård; Michael Narodoslawsky; Gustav A Sandin; RISE; []
    Nyckelord :; LCA; Life cycle assessment; wood; forest product; forestry; impact assessment; scenario modelling; end-of-life modelling; allocation; multi-functional; planetary boundaries; life cycle inventory; life cycle impact assessment; environmental assessment;

    Sammanfattning : The prospect of reducing environmental impacts is a key driver for the research and development (R&D) of new forest products. Life cycle assessment (LCA) is often used for assessing the environmental impact of such products, e.g. for the purpose of guiding R&D. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Bauxite residue, also known as red mud, is produced in large quantities as a result of alumina refining (the first stage in aluminium production), and is one of the world’s most abundant and important industrial wastes. As demand for aluminium continues to increase and space to store this residue diminishes, the potential to utilise bauxite residue as a secondary resource is increasingly being considered by the alumina industry.

  5. 5. Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of Industrial Milk Production

    Författare :Merete Høgaas Eide; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :dairy; cleaning; sustainability; packaging; LCA; Life Cycle Assessment; toxicity; milk;

    Sammanfattning : Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) was applied to milk production and processing in a study of the Norwegian dairy industry. This method, LCA, is used to assess the potential environmental impact of a material, product or service throughout its entire life cycle, from the extraction of the raw materials, the production process, and the user phase, to the final disposal.
