Abstract

As part of a comprehensive research program on Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) methodology and practices, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) hosted a meeting in Cincinnati, Ohio, on June 12 & 13, 1995, on Streamlining LCA. Organized by Research Triangle Institute’s Center for Environmental Analysis for the EPA, the conference provided a forum where practitioners and researchers could present the most up-to-date information on streamlined approaches. Time was also allotted for facilitated discussion which allowed the participants to express their thoughts and experiences with streamlined LCA applications, leading to butter understanding of the subject.
