ENRG 466 - Life Cycle Analysis


Life cycle analysis (LCA) is a powerful tool for assessing the environmental impact associated with all the stages of a product’s life from cradle-to-grave (i.e from raw material extraction through materials processing, manufacture, distribution, use, repair and maintenance, and disposal or recycling).  This large picture view helps avoid a narrow outlook on environmental concerns and is an excellent method of comparing two potential products to see which has less impact on the environment. This course will focus on the energetic costs and carbon emissions associated with energy resources and technologies. Also offered as ESCI 466.

Prerequisites & Notes: MATH 124; PHYS 161 or CHEM 161; ESCI 380 or ENRG 380.
