Advancing Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) in Latin America
Over 90 representatives from across Latin America came together to look at how Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) could be rolled out through the steel industry in the region. LCA provides a method of assessing the environmental impacts of a product or material across the whole supply chain, from raw material extraction to end of life recycling or disposal. On 23rd October the World Steel Association (worldsteel) in partnership with Ternium and Alacero, the Latin American Steel Association, held a seminar on “The Life Cycle Assessment of steel and its impact on the value chain” in Buenos Aires, Argentina. This is the 2nd LCA and Steel Seminar of worldsteel’s ongoing global LCA seminar series after the 1st seminar in Beijing in July this year.To read the full press release, click here.
