Life Cycle Assessment
Life Cycle Assessment determines the total environmental impact of a product from beginning to end of life, or cradle-to-grave. This is done through accounting for all material and energy-related inputs and outputs throughout the life of a product. It helps to measure all steps of production and use, and their subsequent environmental and health implications. Life Cycle Assessment provides a producer information for all direct and indirect environmental impacts associated with their products and processes, illuminating areas for improved design choices or making decisions between one chemical product or process and another.
