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 ...
