Loss of mineral resource value in LCA: application of the JRC-LCI method to multiple case studies combined with inaccessibility and value-based impact assessment

Abstract

Several approaches addressing mineral resource dissipation have recently been developed in life cycle assessment. One of them, developed by the JRC of the European Commission (JRC-LCI), suggests to account for dissipative resource flows in life cycle inventories (LCIs). This article aims at (i) further testing this approach on case studies, to derive insights regarding its potential large-scale implementation in LCI databases and (ii) complementing the previous JRC work by capturing the severity of dissipation and associated value loss in LCIA results.
