Integration of simple LCA into complex systems the CaSIE² project - Etienne LEES-PERASSO - 2014
Recent scientific, technical and normative works insist on the relevance of life cycle assessment (LCA) as a methodology to evaluate the environmental performance of buildings. Therefore, LCA is recognized today as a main tool to perform the environmental analyses of the materials, equipment and buildings levels. Though, those systems are complex by nature. They interlock and overlap with one another, making any evaluation a long and fastidious task.
