Chapter
Das Kap. 2 beginnt mit dem Thema Kreislaufwirtschaft und Recycling (Abschn. 2.1). Ein Teilaspekt der ökologischen Nachhaltigkeit ist die Kreislaufschließung von Stoffen und Produkten. Die Kreislauffähigkeit von Werkstoffen lässt sich dabei nicht abstrakt definieren, sondern muss die jeweiligen Rahmenbedingunge mit einbeziehen. Hierzu zählt u. a. de...

One of the critical issues in sustainable development is resource consumption and depletion. Currently, the main methods are reserve base models that lack environmental relevance, as nature does not mind whether or not these materials are available. Therefore, an alternative approach "surplus environment" that is advancing the surplus energy approa...

While occupational health is one of the important issues in sustainable development, very few data-supported life cycle methods are available. The social hotspot database (SHDB) is an often used database. The aim of this paper is to compare occupational health impacts of the SHDB with an alternative, risk-factor based method.
Chapter
The objective of this chapter is to explain which secondary environmental consequences (often called rebound effects) life cycle assessment (LCA) and life cycle management (LCM) of products need to consider in addition to the conventional product LCA, and which roles different actors in society have in the context of environmentally sustainable con...
Technical Report
Modelling the end of life (EoL) treatment of products and the question how to account for recyclate obtained and energy recovered have been discussed since the beginning of Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) work well over two decades ago, and many different approaches have been proposed. The same situation applies to the related question on how to accoun...
Technical Report
Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) is widely recognised as the most suitable tool for improving the environmental performance of any kind of product or technology. It has the potential to be used in a wide range of policy instruments from environmental labelling to Green Public Procurement (GPP), strategic technology decisions, and monitoring national res...
Thesis
Status: Quantitative Risikoanalysen (QRA) von Vorfällen einerseits und Produkt-Ökobilanzen andererseits werden bisher in der Praxis isoliert durchgeführt. Zur gezielten Entscheidungsunterstützung hinsichtlich der Relevanz von Vorfallauswirkungen über den Lebensweg von Produkten fehlt bisher eine allgemeine integrierte Methode ebenso wie zum integri...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This paper guides the application of ISO 14044 for closed-and open-loop recycling (including for multi-material products), energy recovery, and reuse/further use, based on the provisions of the "ILCD Handbook – General guide on LCA" [EC 2010] and converted into a quantitative formula for the first time. This "ILCD Recyclability substitution" approa...
Article
Sustainability is central to the policy objectives of the European Commission (EC), but a widely accepted integrated sustainability assessment framework in support of policy analysis and development is currently lacking. Here, we sketch the conceptual basis for the proposed European Sustainability Footprint (ESF) - an integrated sustainability asse...
Technical Report
Full-text available
Sustainability science explores the interactions between human activities on the Earth’s life support systems. Unless we understand these interactions, we will not be able to design a path towards sustainable development. In this report we focus our attention on water as key resource for human health and ecosystem health and as archetypal resource...

Purpose To support life cycle-based EU policies, the European Commission created the "European Platform on Life Cycle Assessment (EPLCA)." The platform aims at providing coherent and quality-assured life cycle data, methods, and studies. The LCA Resources Directory (RD), one of the deliverables of the EPLCA, has so far consisted of lists of service...
Technical Report
Full-text available
Life Cycle Thinking (LCT) and Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) are scientific approaches behind a growing number of environmental policies and business decision support in the context of Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP) / Sustainable Industrial Policy (SIP) (COM(2008) 397/3) and Resource Efficiency (COM(2011)0571). The International Referenc...
Chapter
Full-text available
Quality and consistency of life cycle based decision support are essential in public policy and business context. Those can and should be supported by ‘critical review’ of underlying data and of life cycle assessment (LCA) studies themselves. A review can help avoiding errors, assuring that all options or method requirements have been appropriately...

Introduction The European Commission is supporting the development of the International Reference Life Cycle Data System (ILCD). This consists primarily of the ILCD Handbook and the ILCD Data Network. This paper gives an insight into the scientific positions of business, govern-ments, consultants, academics, and others that were expressed at this p...
Article
Sustainability of products is related to Life Cycle Thinking and Assessment. It is widely understood that environmentally preferable products cannot be simply defined by “Recyclable,” “natural,” “renewable resource based,” “biodegradable,” “chlorine free,” “reusable,” or “organic.” It is the product’s complete life cycle that must be environmentall...
Article
Die Forderung nach „nachhaltigen Wirtschaftsformen“ umfasst wirtschaftliche, technische, soziale und ökologische Anforderungen, die eine ausgewogene „dauerhaft durchhaltbare Entwicklung“ ermöglichen sollen. Der Grundgedanke dabei ist, die Entwicklungsmöglichkeiten der kommenden Generationen mindestens auf dem Niveau der heutigen zu erhalten.
Article
The development of sustainable products requires the consistent modelling of ecological, economic, and social aspects along the Life Cycle of the product A Life Cycle Sustainability methodology and database has been developed. It integrates the new Life Cycle Working Time approach for the most important work-related social issues like qualified wor...
Article
Environmentally benign production requires besides production integrated environmental optimization, the consideration of the life cycle, as well as End-of-Pipe technologies. On the example of a refinery, which are in focus of the environmental discussion (e. g. fuel desulphurization, VOC-, SO2-, heavy metal carrying dust emissions), different tech...

While the R & D of new photovoltaic systems realises significant progress in the field of specific panel efficiency, technical life time and production cost, only few efforts in recycling of photovoltaic systems have taken place so far. To ensure a reasonable design of future recycling processes, experts in practical recycling processing from the F...

Die Einrichtung der Arbeitsgruppe „Land Use“ der SETAC (Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry) (SETAC 1999) und der COST Action E9 der Europäischen Gemeinschaft zeigt die Notwendigkeit der Integration von Naturrauminanspruchnahme in Ökobilanzen. Geeignet ist eine Methode, die in die komplexe Struktur von Prozeßnetzen der Ökobilanz mit u...
Article
The formation of the Working Group 'Land use' by SETAC (Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry) and of the COST Action E9 by the European Community is the manifestation of the necessity to integrate the impact category 'Land Use' in LCAs. The requisite method should permit the integration of different land use activities into the complex...
Article
Full-text available
The partitioning of rain water into throughfall, stemflow and interception loss when passing through plant canopies depends on properties of the respective plant species, such as leaf area and branch angles. In heterogeneous vegetation, such as tropical forest or polycultural systems, the presence of different plant species may consequently result...

ABSTRACT The concept of single-tree effects has been developed in forest ecology by studying gradients of soil characteristics around individual trees which provide information about the specific influence which a tree of a certain species, age and size exerts on soil properties. We analyzed single-tree effects of useful tree species with the objec...
