Unformatted text preview: EPA/600/R-06/060 May 2006 LIFE CYCLE ASSESSMENT: PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICE by Scientific Applications International Corporation (SAIC) 11251 Roger Bacon Drive Reston, VA 20190 Contract No. 68-C02-067 Work Assignment 3-15 Work Assignment Manager Mary Ann Curran Systems Analysis Branch National Risk Management Research Laboratory Cincinnati, Ohio 45268 NATIONAL RISK MANAGEMENT RESEARCH LABORATORY OFFICE OF RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT U.S. ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY CINCINNATI, OHIO 45268 Notice The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency through its Office of Research and Development funded and managed the research described here under contract no. 68-C02-067 to Scientific Applications International Corporation (SAIC). It has been subjected to the Agencys review and has been approved for publication as an EPA document. Mention of trade names or commercial products does not constitute endorsement or recommendation for use. Use of this methodology does not imply EPA approval of the conclusions of any specific life cycle assessment. ii Foreword The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is charged by Congress with protecting the Nation's land, air, and water resources. Under a mandate of national environmental laws, the Agency strives to formulate and implement actions leading to a compatible balance between human activities and the ability of natural systems to support and nurture life. To meet this mandate, EPA's research program is providing data and technical support for solving environmental problems today and building a science knowledge base necessary to manage our ecological resources wisely, understand how pollutants affect our health, and prevent or reduce environmental risks in the future. The National Risk Management Research Laboratory (NRMRL) is the Agency's center for investigation of technological and management approaches for preventing and reducing risks from pollution that threaten human health and the environment. The focus of the Laboratory's research program is on methods and their cost-effectiveness for prevention and control of pollution to air, land, water, and subsurface resources; protection of water quality in public water systems; remediation of contaminated sites, sediments and ground water; prevention and control of indoor air pollution; and restoration of ecosystems. NRMRL collaborates with both public and private sector partners to foster technologies that reduce the cost of compliance and to anticipate emerging problems. NRMRL's research provides solutions to environmental problems by: developing and promoting technologies that protect and improve the environment; advancing scientific and engineering information to support regulatory and policy decisions; and providing the technical support and information transfer to ensure implementation of environmental regulations and strategies at the national, state, and community levels....
