Environmental engineers, industrial ecologists, hazardous waste
managers and other professionals within the environmental field
recognize the importance of incorporating elements of risk
assessment with life-cycle assessments., These analytical tools
have become increasingly a part of environmental management
practices. But until now this development has been ignored by
textbook literature for graduate students and
professionals.Integrated Life-Cycle and Risk Assessment for
Industrial Processes covers the use of life-cycle assessment, risk
assessment, and a combined framework of the two in the estimation
of environmental damage, providing explanations of methods and
descriptions of practical applications in the environmental
analysis of industrial processes.The book opens by examining
environmental strategies, then places life-cycle and risk
assessment within an environmental toolbox, and explores the
integration of the two methods via a case study. This volume is one
of the first attempts to illustrate the interfaces between the
tools and considers options for continued integration.; The new
communication between life-cycle assessment experts and risk
assessment scientists results in a manual that is practical and
useful in environmental analysis and decision making.
