Overview

The International Journal of Life Cycle Assessment is the first journal devoted entirely to Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) 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 journal 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.

  • Includes papers on LCA methodology; social and political acceptance; governmental activities and examples from industrial applications.
  • Also presents historical sketches, short version of actual LCAs and case studies.
