Abstract

The present article deals with a method of the environmental Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) as a tool for the evaluation of environmental burden of selected products. The assessment of the life cycle of individual products should be carried out while considering emissions released during production, use and disposal of products and during processes of raw material extraction, production of materials and energy, auxiliary processes or sub-processes.
