  author={Reinout Heijungs},
The ISO-standard for LCA distinguishes four phases, of which the last one, the interpretation, is the least elaborated one. It can be regarded as containing procedural steps (like a completeness check) as well as numerical steps (like a sensitivity check). This paper gives five examples of techniques that can be used for the numerical steps. These are the contribution analysis, the perturbation analysis, the uncertainty analysis, the comparative analysis, and the discernibility analysis. All… CONTINUE READING
