Stochastic approach based on the Monte Carlo (MC) simulation used for Life Cycle Inventory (LCI) uncertainty analysis in the Rare Earth Elements (REEs) recovery

Session MO.2.A || Life Cycle Approaches in the Raw Materials Sector II Authors SALA, Dariusz; Bieda, Bogusław Abstract According to European Commission’s Report on Critical Raw Materials and the Circular Economy the raw materials, such as rare earths, have a high economic importance for the EU, and are essential for the production of a broad [...]

Application of entropy production to compare the environmental sustainability of industrial processes in Entropy-LCAs

Session WE.1.C || Methodological Approaches to Assess Life Cycle Consequences Authors Rapf, Matthias; Tang, Longhan; Pekgil, Gizem; Kranert, Martin Abstract In LCA practice, weighting and valuation of environmental impacts is strongly based on subjective impressions and decisions. This makes LCAs with similar scopes very hard to compare. We are therefore examining entropy production as physical [...]

Statistical entropy analysis to evaluate cascading use of wood and its impact on material circularity

Session WE.2.C || Benefits of Retaining Materials and Their Quality in a Circular Economy Authors Navare, Kranti; Vrancken, Karl C.; Van Acker, Karel Abstract The circular economy (CE), as defined by European Commission, is an economy where the value of products, materials and resources is maintained as long as possible. Although maintaining the value of [...]

An open data network for environmental information on construction products

Session TU.2.A || Mainstreaming Construction LCA – Based on an Open Data Network Authors Kusche, Oliver Abstract This contribution focuses on the question where the data actually comes from that is used for modelling in construction LCA tools. A few years ago, the first Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) program operators had started to publish their [...]

Environmental and socio-economic benefits of circularity in real estate management

Session TU.1.A || Circular Economy Buildings – from Research to Practice Authors Rydberg, Tomas; Andersson, Johanna; Gerhardsson, Hanna; Kultje, Eva; Lewrén, Adam; Loh Lindholm, Carina; Löfving, Joel Abstract The environmental potential of reusing interior and building products (notably furniture, lighting, doors, windows, flooring and ceilings) has been calculated by a rather basic model based on [...]
