5.0 out of 5 stars Environmental Life cycle assessment of goods and services: an input-output approach Oct. 2 2008
A Kid's Review - Published on
Format: Paperback
Environmental Life Cycle Assessment of Goods and Services: An Input-Output Approach

I find this book very useful because of the treatment given to the explanation of the concepts and the good examples which showed the application of these concepts. I recommended for those interested in life cycle assessment and its applications.

5.0 out of 5 stars lifecycle assessment can be fun May 9 2006
By Ryan England - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I think this book does a good job explaining the science of lifecycle assessment, including all the math behind those big tables, and has good examples to illustrate the things you're learning about.
3.0 out of 5 stars This is a Solid Reference April 23 2014
By Beverly A. Ramsey - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
While this is not the first book I pull form the shelf when looking at a new life-cycle assessment to be done, I usually do refer to it. This is quite clearly presented and covers all the economics of projects on a life-cycle basis. It is a bit weak in the natural resoruce damages risk area and maybe a bit weak in terms of sustainability or energy efficiency values.
4.0 out of 5 stars A good resource text March 12 2015

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A good resource text, but the LCA, LCCA tools are loose and not well contrasted. Very confusing on those topics. Nice support of the EIO-LCA tool, which seriously needs to be updated. Consider using data, which has similar tools for energy life-cycle calculations.
