Abstract:with a product over its life cycle. The most important applications are: • Analysis of the contribution of the life cycle stages to the overall environmental load, usually with the aim to prioritise improvements on products or processes. • Comparison between products for internal or internal communications. LCA is a relatively young technique; it became popular in the early nineties. Initially many thought that LCA would be a very good tool to support environmental claims that could directly be used in marketing. Over the years, it has become clear that this is not the best application for LCA, although it is clearly important to communicate LCA results in a careful and well-balanced way.
