Life Cycle Assessment (LCA)

Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) helps the industry to design and optimise product and technology development processes by
reducing the environmental impacts of a particular product throughout its entire life cycle.


• Determining the resources and environmental impacts of the entire product life cycle from the raw material
extraction to the end-of-life stage
• Optimising the sustainable manufacturing process of products
• Scenarios to establish waste management processes, in particular for Waste-to-Energy technologies
• Investigation of environmental aspects and impacts with GaBi 8.0 sustainability software


• Quantitative analysis of input and output data for life cycle inventory
• Estimation of emissions and environmental impacts of the tested system
• Designing cleaner production options by saving resources, recycling energy and material flows, and minimizing environmental risk
• Complex product life cycle analysis with different impact assessment methods while normalizing and weighting environmental impacts
• Proposing sustainable waste management through end-of-life analyses and design of waste preparation technologies
• Comparison of the investigated system with alternative products, processes, or services, including international professional literature research
• Supporting the development of new products, processes, or services
• Carbon footprint calculation, interactive report (i-report)
• Life cycle costing, life cycle work environment and social life cycle assessment
• Supporting environmental performance assessment, environmental report, environmental product declaration, and sustainability strategy development


• GaBi 8.0 LCA software
