The FP7 funded “DRAGON” project is organising a workshop on Life Cycle Assessment. It is open to all interested FP7 Consortia, and will take place on the premises of the University of Loeben (Austria).
„Life Cycle Assessment“ (LCA) also known as “Life Cycle Analysis” is an important topic within all currently running FP7 projects dealing with “resource efficiency”. The term “life cycle” refers to the notion that all the stages of a product`s life from cradle-to-grave (i.e. from raw material extraction through material processing, manufacture, distribution, use, repair, maintenance and disposal or recycling) are considered.
The principal aim of LCA is to compare the comprehensive environ-mental effects assigned to particular products or services in order to improve processes, support policy and provide a sound basis for an environmental-friendly decision-making process.
