Waste Management LCA
Waste management system is modelled as widely as desired from collection of different waste types (one or several), transportations and final disposal to the utilization of energy and/or materials. Life cycle assessment provides information on environmental impacts and costs of each studied aspect. Modelling can be targeted for example on a carbon footprint, the assessment of environmental effects, life cycle costs, nutrient cycles and the planning of waste collection.
In addition, to analyzing the current state LCA is used to comparing potential alternate waste management scenarios. For example, different types of waste management systems or process options can be compared with each other. In addition, best option can be selected based on the results of the waste management LCA study.
On life cycle assessments LCA Consulting uses GaBi life cycle assessment software of which we have over 15 years of experience. We use the life cycle assessment standards ISO 14040 and ISO 14044 as well as IPCC guidelines in addition to other necessary standards and instructions.
