New LCIA needed for natural resources

May 26, 2017

A new paper concludes that a new LCIA method is needed, one that consistently addresses all natural resource categories to avoid burden shifting from the impact associate with one resource to that of another.
There is currently no single LCIA method available that addresses impacts for all natural resource categories, nor do existing methods and models consistently address different natural resource categories, with exceptions being the energy and solar energy-related methods. 
The study proposes a framework based on the concept of stock/fund/flow resources to identify, across all categories, whether depletion/dissipation (of stocks and funds) or competition (for flows) is the main relevant aspect.
The study is based on the findings of an UNEP/SETAC expert group.
