Environmental Impact Of ManufacturingStreaming Video - 2006
The planet is not a garbage can, as every Earth-friendly manufacturer knows. This program charts the process of lifecycle assessment for items made of metal, plastic, and wood. The environmental impacts of specific products are followed in detail, including use of natural resources, depletion of raw materials, emissions to the atmosphere and water supply, solid wastes, and ecological consequences. Both conceptual and analytical approaches to lifecycle assessment are presented, and the four main stages of lifecycle assessment are identified: goal definition and scope, inventory of materials, impact assessment, and assessment interpretation.
