    Research output: Book/ReportReport


    The report presents the results of a two-stage study "Life cycle analysis of road and earth construction". In the first stage of the work a life-cycle impact assessment procedure for the comparison and evaluation of alternative road and earth constructions was developed. Additionally a database containing the environmental burdens of the most significant construction materials and unit operations was constructed. In the second stage the assembled data for utilisation was transferred as a practical model by creating an inventory analysis program.
