LCA as decision support tool in the food and feed sector: evidence from R&D case studies
- BusinessEnvironment Systems and Decisions
Biomass waste and waste-derived feedstocks are important resources for the development of sustainable value-added products. However, the provision and preparation of biomass as well as all possible…
A Review on Life Cycle Assessment of the Olive Oil Production
Olive oil is one of the most globally recognized high-value products, with 4 million hectares cultivated in the Mediterranean area. The production process involves many stages: farming, extraction,…

LCA studies of food products as background for environmental product declarations
Goal, Scope and BackgroundFood production systems invariably precipitate negative environmental impacts. Life cycle assessment (LCA), a standardised tool for evaluating the environmental costs of…

Co-product allocation in life cycle assessments of seafood production systems: Review of problems and strategies
Background, Aim and ScopeAs Life Cycle Assessment is being increasingly applied to study fisheries and aquaculture systems, the LCA methodology must be adapted to address the unique aspects of these…
The need for co-product allocation in the life cycle assessment of agricultural systems—is “biophysical” allocation progress?
- BiologyThe International Journal of Life Cycle Assessment
Whether new “biophysical” co-product allocation methodologies developed for LCA studies of agricultural systems really represent underlying physical relationships between the material and energy flows and the co-products in such systems, and hence are of value is examined.
Attributional and consequential LCA of milk production
This study showed it is possible to perform both A LCA (mass and economic allocation) and CLCA (system expansion) of milk, and recommended LCA practitioners to better distinguish between ALCA and C LCA in applied studies to reach a higher degree of transparency.
Application of the Cereal Unit in a new allocation procedure for agricultural life cycle assessments
AN APPROACH TO TREATMENT OF RECYCLING IN LCA STUDY.
SUMMARY As still evolving scientific tool LCA is a subject to a number of problems such as defining system boundaries; allocation of environmental impacts due to making more than one product in the…
Avoiding Co‐Product Allocation in Life‐Cycle Assessment
It is shown that in prospective life-cycle assessments, co-product allocation can always be avoided by system expansion, and that all the different co-products situations can be covered by the same theoretical model and the same practical procedure.
