Introduction to Life-Cycle Analysis for Sustainable Materials Management: Considering environmental burden in end-of-life decision-making

Thursday, March 23, 2017
11:00-12:30 PM PST

 This webinar will present the concept of life-cycle thinking and life-cycle analysis (LCA). LCA is becoming more widely used to understand sustainability and make end-of-life decisions, requiring that personnel throughout solid waste management gain familiarity with this approach. Using examples from sustainable materials management, participants will be exposed to key concepts and terminology in LCA. 


Through this webinar, participants will:

  • Become familiar with life-cycle thinking as a way to understand environmental burden and approach decision-making
  • Explore why life-cycle thinking and LCA are incorporated into solid waste management and policy (Bryan Staley)
  • Learn key terminology used in life-cycle analysis and the types of analyses that can be performed
  • Develop an appreciation of key considerations when using a life-cycle approach
