Life cycle assessment in road infrastructure planning using spatial geological data

Environmental impacts during the life cycle stages of transport infrastructure are substantial, including among other greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, as well as resource and energy use. For transport infrastructure to be sustainable, such issues …

LCA applied to nano scale zero valent iron synthesis

Zero valent iron has been successfully used for the removal of a wide range of pollutants such as chlorinated hydrocarbons, nitrobenzenes, chlorinated phenols, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB) and heavy metals from soils (Dong et al. 2010 ; Wua et …

Does hybrid LCA with a complete system boundary yield adequate results for product promotion?

One of the principles of life cycle assessment (LCA) that have gained a wide consensus is the selection of a complete system boundary (Suh et al. 2004 ). This has given rise to the development of hybrid analysis, which incorporates input-output …

Über diese Zeitschrift

The International Journal of Life Cycle Assessment (Int J Life Cycle Assess) is the first journal devoted entirely to Life Cycle Assessment and closely related methods. LCA has become a recognized instrument to assess the ecological burdens and impacts throughout the consecutive and interlinked stages of a product system, from raw material acquisition or generation from natural resources, through production and use to final disposal. The Int J Life Cycle Assess is a forum for scientists developing LCA and LCM (Life Cycle Management); LCA and LCM practitioners; managers concerned with environmental aspects of products; governmental environmental agencies responsible for product quality; scientific and industrial societies involved in LCA development, and ecological institutions and bodies.

Papers on applied LCA/LCM, especially case studies, will be considered for publication if they are of general interest to the LCA/LCM community and present new insight or knowledge, such as a product that has been rarely or never assessed; a special interest operation, e.g. hydrofracking or Carbon Capture and Sequestration (CCS); novel methodology; or located in a non-mainstream region. In addition to LCA/LCM, papers on Life Cycle Sustainability Assessment (LCSA) and Social Life Cycle Assessment (SLCA) are also welcome. Life Cycle Costing (LCC) studies are considered for publication in the framework of LCSA (three pillar concept/triple bottom line).

Papers on the application of life cycle assessment methodology in single issue studies, such as greenhouse gas analysis as a means to assess carbon footprint, climate change, or global warming potential, will also be considered if the conclusions are clearly limited to the studied impacts. Discussion must indicate the limitations of not conducting a “full” LCA that accounts for all environmentally relevant impacts (i.e., the potential trade-offs).
