Background and Future Prospects in Life Cycle Assessment Hardback
Edited by Walter Klopffer
Part of the LCA Compendium - The Complete World of Life Cycle Assessment series
Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) has become the recognized instrument to assess the ecological burdens and human health impacts connected with the complete life cycle (creation, use, end-of-life) of products, processes and activities, enabling the assessor to model the entire system from which products are derived or in which processes and activities operate.
This volume introduces the major new book series LCA Compendium - The Complete World of Life Cycle Assessment.
In this volume, the main drivers in the development of LCA are explored.
The volume also discusses strengths and limitations in LCA as well as challenges and gaps, thus offering an unbiased picture of the state-of-the-art and future of LCA.
