Description

This book covers the use of life-cycle assessment, risk assessment, and a combined framework of the two in the estimation of environmental damage, providing explanations of methods and descriptions in the environmental analysis of industrial processes. The book opens by examining environmental strategies, then places life-cycle and risk assessment within an environmental toolbox, and explores the integration of the two methods via a case study. This volume is one of the first attempts to illustrate the interfaces between the tools and considers options for continued integration. The new communication between life-cycle assessment experts and risk assessment scientists results in a manual that it practical and useful in environmental analysis and decision making.

Reviews

…I enthusiastically welcome Integrated Live-Cycle and Risk Assessment for Industrial Processes. In this book Guido Sonnemann, Francesc Castells and Marta Schuhmacher provide not only an updated introduction to life-cycle assessment, but also to risk assessment. While they demonstrate the potential for a further integration of these two approaches, they also show the limits and constraints. I certainly agree with them on the usefulness and need for a toolbox comprised of varied environmental system analysis methods and approaches… - Mary Ann Curran, U.S. EPA, from the Foreword
