Accounting for marine plastics in abiotic resource depletion

Session MO.3.D || Addressing Marine Litter Within Life Cycle Assessment and Management Authors Vázquez-Rowe, Ian; Ita-Nagy, Diana; Kahhat, Ramzy Abstract Mainstream abiotic resource depletion impact categories tend to focus on the extraction of resources (e.g. crude oil) from nature obviating their use in the technosphere, when they are temporarily unavailable, or after their end-of-life, when [...]

Potentials for emission reduction and value creation in the rehabilitation of existing building stock using macroeconomic analysis

Session WE.2.A || Life Cycle Sustainability in Construction and Renovation of Buildings II Authors Perez-Valdes, Gerardo A.; Fufa, Selamawit; Fjellheim, Kristin Abstract Given that most of the world's building stock for the next 30 years already exists today, renovation of existing buildings and infrastructure represent an important pathway towards a more sustainable future. There is [...]

Identification of dissipative emissions for improved assessment of metal resource use in LCA

Session MO.1.A || Life Cycle Approaches in the Raw Materials Sector Authors Owsianiak, Mikolaj; Hauschild, Michael Abstract Environmental dissipation is a novel approach to account for impacts from mineral resource use. In contrast to all other resource-related life cycle impact assessment methods, which use data on extractions as input to calculation of indicator scores, environmental [...]

Spatial configurations of urban waste management systems considering local uses of recovered products

Session TU.2.B || Future Sustainable Lifestyles – Urban Structure Authors Tanguy, Audrey; Laforest, Valérie; Glaus, Mathias Abstract The transition to a circular economy in Western countries calls for a return to fine-scale management of urban flows. While our current linear economy relies on centralized and mostly external urban metabolisms, a higher degree of circularity implies [...]
