Talking  Points 3 2015 Thumb

Life-cycle assessment (LCA) is the study of the environmental impact of a process or product, and includes measurement of energy consumed and all emissions during raw material production and manufacturing of the final product through use and end-of-life (recycling/disposal). An LCA is an accurate and empirical evaluation of how "green" something really is.

Developed in 2009 as part of the Talking Point series to educate legislators and the general public about hot-dip galvanized steel. This 1-page handout discusses how life-cycle assessment (LCA) supports the claim that hot-dip galvanized steel is green. Costs during the production phase, use phase, and end-of life phase are broken down to show the complete life-cycle cost.
