Energy Spells Trouble for Life Cycle Assessment
Karlstad University, Faculty of Technology and Science, Department of Energy, Environmental and Building Technology.
2004 (English)Report (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

For most products and production processes, several quite different forms of energy are involved in different stages in the life cycle. In a recently performed Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) case study, twelve types of energy-related problems for LCA methodology were encountered. We discuss possibilities for resolving these problems and some of the fundamental thermodynamic roots of some of the problems. In this, we also analyse the limitations for the use of the exergy concept in LCA. We also discuss some of the principal difficulties associated with different forms of energy when making use of the results of an LCI or an LCIA in a process development project. We conclude that a large methodology development effort is necessary and that it needs a scientific basis embracing both LCA theory and thermodynamics
