  • Life Cycle Assessment guidelines for the sustainable production and recycling of Aggregates: the Sustainable Aggregates Resource Management project (SARMa)
    Journal of Cleaner Production, 2012
    Co-Authors: Gian Andrea Blengini, Elena Garbarino, Slavko Šolar, Deborah J. Shields, Tamás Hámor, Raffaele Vinai, Zacharias Agioutantis

    Abstract:

    The mining/quarrying Industry is a sector of Industry where there are very few Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) tools, and where the role of LCA has been poorly investigated. A key issue is the integration of three inter-dependent life cycles: Project, Asset and Product. Given the unique features of mining LCAs, this Note from the Field presents a common methodology implemented within the Sustainable Aggregates Resource Management (SARMa) Project (www.sarmaproject.eu) in order to boost adoption of LCA in the Aggregate Industry in South Eastern Europe. The proposed methodology emphasises the importance of resource efficiency and recycling in the context of a Sustainable Supply Mix of Aggregates for the construction Industry. Through its adoption, Aggregate producers, recyclers, and governmental planners would gain confidence with LCA tools and conduct consistent and meaningful life cycle analyses of natural and recycled Aggregates.

  • Integrated life cycle management of Aggregates quarrying, processing and recycling: definition of a common LCA methodology in the SARMa project
    International Journal of Sustainable Society, 2011
    Co-Authors: Gian Andrea Blengini, Elena Garbarino

    Abstract:

    Most of the environmental knowledge, presently used to understand or design sustainable industrial systems, is derived from an application of life cycle assessment (LCA). The mining/quarrying Industry is probably one of the sectors where there has been relatively less use of LCA tools, or where LCA has received less consensus. A key issue is the integration between three inter- dependent life cycles: project, asset and product life cycles. Given the unique features of mining LCAs, this paper presents a common methodology implemented within the EU sustainable Aggregates resource management project in order to boost adoption of LCA in the Aggregate Industry in South Eastern Europe.
