How to conduct a Life Cycle Assessment? 


Since it is a new and developing subject, the definition and framework is evolving (ISO 14044). Therefore, considerable weight is provided to the interpretations of the assessor, which in turn requires the procedure of LCA to be accurate for obtaining meaningful results. 


This review paper takes the reader through the nitty-gritty's of LCA, explaining the jargons, and ten critical aspects that one should carefully consider while performing the LCA. Of course, with help of examples. A good read for beginners on how to conduct an LCA.
