Special Issue "Environmental Life Cycle Assessment"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 March 2019).
Interests: sustainable energy; local food systems; ecosystem services; curling
This Special Issue encourages the submission of research papers that utilize environmental life cycle assessment (LCA) methods to understand the environmental impacts of products and services. We welcome original research dealing with life cycle assessment approaches to understanding a wide range of topics. We specifically encourage submissions focusing on novel approaches to acquiring data necessary for LCA, unique applications of LCA methods to assess unconventional products/systems, and LCA applications to manufacturing and/or material systems. Papers submitted to this Special Issue will undergo a rigorous peer review procedure similar to other issues of Sustainability, with the aim of rapid and wide dissemination of research results, developments and applications.
