Life Cycle Assessment (LCA)

LCA CONCEPT

According to ISO 14040, LCA is defined as the compilation and evaluation of the inputs, outputs and the potential environmental impacts of a product system throughout its life cycle. Thus, LCA is the tool that addresses the environmental aspects and potential environmental impacts throughout a product's life cycle from raw material acquisition through production, use, end-of-life treatment, recycling and final disposal.
