Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) methodology evaluates holistically the environmental consequences of a product system or activity, by quantifying the energy and materials used, the wastes released to the environment, and assessing the environmental impacts of those energy, materials and wastes. Despite the international focus on environmental impact and LCA, the quality of the underlying life cycle inventory data is at least as, if not more, important than the more qualitative LCA process.This work… 

Coupling Computer-Aided Process Simulation and Estimations of Emissions and Land Use for Rapid Life Cycle Inventory Modeling.

TLDR
Improvements in the qualitative LCI for acetic acid production compared to commonly used databases and top-down methodologies are revealed and modeling techniques improve the quantitative LCI results for inputs and uncontrolled emissions.
