Life Cycle Assessment Research Guide

According to the EPA, LCA is a technique to assess the environmental aspects and potential impacts associated with a product, process, or service, by:

  • compiling an inventory of relevant energy and material inputs and environmental releases;
  • evaluating the potential environmental impacts associated with identified inputs and releases;
  • interpreting the results to help you make a more informed decision.
