Life Cycle Assessment
LCA is a tool for environmental impacts evaluation through all stages of a product life. This assessment is a cradle to grave one, according to CML2001,dec 2007 method with normalization and weighting. The data output is the total of environmental impacts of production, use phase and end of life.
|ADP||Abiotic Depletion (kg Sb-Equiv.) :|
> Rate of decrease of non renewable resources (ores, oil, water, …).
|AP||Acidification Potential (kg SO2-Equiv.) :|
> Acid rains and atmosphere attacks due to sulfur based substances emissions to air.
|EP||Eutrophication Potential (kg Phosphate-Equiv.) :|
> Increase of nutrient quantity in waters which alters ecosystems (algae proliferation, …).
|GWP||Global Warming Potential (kg CO2-Equiv.) :|
> Increasing of earth temperature due to greenhouse gas emissions.
|POCP||Photochem. Ozone Creation Potential (kg Ethene-Equiv.) :|
> Ozone creation in the troposphere, due to oxidation of VOC released into the air, activated by NOx and UV from sunlight, causes smog.
