This unit on Life Cycle Analysis or Assessment (LCA) - Methodology provides you with the basic information on why should we make an LCA, how much effort should we invest, who are the interested parties, and what methodology (steps) will we use? After you have read this unit, you are able to understand the following aspects of LCA:
- Inventory: Data collection, determine total emissions and resource use,
- Impact assessment: Transform (long) list of LCI results in environmental impacts, like climate change, acidification, eco-toxic impacts, among others;
- Interpretation: What conclusions can we draw, how (un)certain are we about these conclusions.
