Obsolescence in LCA–methodological challenges and solution approaches

Marina Proske, Matthias Finkbeiner (2019) Erschienen in: The International Journal of Life Cycle Assessment

Purpose Obsolescence, as premature end of use, increases the overall number of products produced and consumed, and thereby can increase the environmental impact. Measures to decrease the effects of obsolescence by altering the product or service design have the potential to increase use time (defined as the realized active service life) of devices, but can themselves have (environmental) drawbacks, for example, because the amount of material required for production increases. As such, paying special attention to methodological choices when assessing such measures and strategies using life cycle assessment (LCA) needs is crucial and mainpart of this study. 

The study was published in The International Journal of Life Cycle Assessment, Springer-Verlag GmbH Germany, part of Springer Nature 2019
