Work Groups/WG 3 - Life cycle analysis
Work Group 3
Life cycle analysis
Chairman: John Havey
The Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) sub-working group is working to improve the state of practice of LCA for pavement and enhance the environmental sustainability of asphalt pavement through the use of LCA in decision-making for pavement design and asset management.
Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) is an approach to quantify the environmental impacts of industrial products and processes, and part of an LCA’s value lies in its capacity to provide decision makers with a comprehensive perspective for considering new projects. In 2009, the UCPRC began work with national and international partners to develop a framework for LCA for pavement. The goals of this project are to develop a tool for performing pavement LCA and to provide government policy makers with new insights for decisions concerning pavement projects and policy.
