Life cycle analysis (LCA) is the systematic approach of looking at a product's complete life cycle, from raw materials to final disposal of the product. It offers a Ã¢â‚¬Å“cradle to grave" look at a product or process, considering environmental aspects and potential impacts. This report covers LCA basics, including issues to consider when starting a product life cycle assessment.
