PlasticsEurope launches the revised LCA webpages

PlasticsEurope promotes the use of Life Cycle Thinking (LCT) to improve understanding about product benefits and to help users make more informed decisions. As a scientific method, Life cycle assessment (LCA) is a technique used to analyse the potential environmental impacts associated with a product, process or service.

It involves:
•    Compiling an inventory of energy and material inputs and environmental releases
•    Assessing the potential environmental impacts associated with identified inputs and releases
•    Calculating performance indicators to make informed decisions

New LCA webpages: Features
The new, revised LCA webpages offer much more flexibility and facilitate easy access by:

•    Flowcharts (which shows the complexity and high level of integration in our industry)
•    Product families
•    Product lists
