A Life-Cycle-Analysis (LCA) is a scientific method to assess environmental impacts associated with all the stages of a product's life from raw material extraction through materials processing, manufacture, distribution, use, repair and maintenance, and disposal or recycling.

LCA helps

  • to recognize and minimize environmental impacts

  • to make decisions in industry, government and non-profit organizations

  • to determine the selection of relevant factors

  • to foster different marketing purposes

Why is it hazardous?

Human health impact of these materials if consumed

  • Reproduction, liver, kidneys, nervous system, tumors, thyroid, brain development, immune system, blood, bones, respiratory system, lung cancer, heart disease, DNA, spleen, bronchitis
