Description

Editors: James Fava, Frank Consoli, Richard Denison, Kenneth Dickson, Tim Mohin, Bruce Vigon

Holistically analyzing the cradle-to-grave environmental impact of products, packages, processes, and activities: such is the role of life-cycle assessment (LCA). This book examines the impact assessment component of the inventory model for LCA, specifically the impact categories of human health, ecological health, and resource depletion. By applying the book's 3-phase conceptual framework--classification, characterization, and valuation--to impact data, decision-makers can turn impact assessment from an implicit, individual value-judgment process to an explicit, collective evaluation.
