VII . Life Cycle Assessment and Sustainability Evaluation

Goal:

The life cycle assessment will give a strong indication on the environmental sustainability of the proposed approaches and technologies developed. The framework to be used can be described as a sequence of interrelated steps. Interpretation is placed in a central position, as any step depends on it for their critical assessment. The life cycle based approach of this methodology makes the sustainability evaluation a system based methodology.
