Hybrid life cycle assessment (LCA) will likely yield more accurate results than process-based LCA

Journal Article
Pomponi, F., & Lenzen, M. (2017)
Hybrid life cycle assessment (LCA) will likely yield more accurate results than process-based LCA. Journal of Cleaner Production, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jclepro.2017.12.119
We analyse the comparative investigation into truncation vs. aggregation errors of process-based and hybrid LCA by Yang et al. 2017. We analyse the validity of their findings ...

Scrutinising embodied carbon in buildings: the next performance gap made manifest.

Journal Article
Pomponi, F., & Moncaster, A. (2017)
Scrutinising embodied carbon in buildings: the next performance gap made manifest. Renewable and Sustainable Energy Reviews, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.rser.2017.06.049
Life cycle assessment (LCA) is becoming increasingly mainstream as an early-stage design-decision tool for buildings. Still, there are considerable variations in how the metho...

Circular economy for the built environment: A research framework

Journal Article
Pomponi, F., & Moncaster, A. (2017)
Circular economy for the built environment: A research framework. Journal of Cleaner Production, 143(1), 710-718. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jclepro.2016.12.055
The built environment puts major pressure on the natural environment; its role in transitioning to a circular economy (CE) is therefore fundamental. However, current CE resear...
