Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
The knowledge in the industry varies and it is far from all that works actively and continuously with Life Cycle Assessment. Discussions on issues dealing in particular with standardization,implementation, resources, future scenarios and advocacy opportunities occur frequently, and in the form of different standpoints. A common methodology and standard is demanded by all respondents. It is considered as one of the major inhibitions, as well as knowledge and the lack of interest from clients when it comes to the demand and use of LCA. It will require education in the subject at all levels of the company that deals with the analysis. Adequate knowledge is a must to use the LCA tool optimally and will be required for it to be considered cost effective and worth investing in. Data tools are a prerequisite and requests have been made to develop simpler and more manageable programs. The clients play an important role in the initial stages when the requirements tend to follow throughout the project. The production phase will be more focused as industry reports highlights it. The future of LCA and its implementation is considered to be good.
