Evaluation of treatment options for well water contaminated with perfluorinated alkyl substances using life cycle assessment

Perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) have recently attracted attention as emerging contaminants of drinking water. Some PFAS have been associated with reproductive and developmental toxicity, cancer, endocrine disruption, and …

The influence of system boundaries and baseline in climate impact assessment of forest products

Since the pre-industrial era, humanity has grown increasingly dependent on non-renewable finite resources. Anthropogenic greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are increasing, affecting the earth’s climate with potentially pervasive and irreversible …

Global spatial analysis of toxic emissions to freshwater: operationalization for LCA

Emissions of toxic substances can impact ecosystems and human to various extents depending on the geographical location of release and their intrinsic physico-chemical properties. When substances, such as pharmaceutical substances released from …

Environmental and social impact assessment of cultural heritage restoration and its application to the Uncastillo Fortress

Recent changes in the global environment (Bouleau and Pont 2015 ) and within human society (Stone et al. 2013 ) have occurred so rapidly that it is very difficult to control and manage them (Dutta 2016 ). The twenty-first century has seen massive …

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).

Unsicherheitsabschätzung für die Berechnung von dynamischen Überschwemmungskarten – Fallstudie Kulmbach

Das vom BMBF geförderte Projekt FloodEvac hat zum Ziel, im Hochwasserfall räumliche und zeitliche Informationen der Hochwassergefährdung bereitzustellen. Im hier vorgestellten Teilprojekt werden Überschwemmungskarten zu Wassertiefen und Fließgeschwindigkeiten unter Angabe der Modellunsicherheiten berechnet.
