Life Cycle Assessments (LCA) is an important tool for industry and policy makers, used to determine the actual emissions of a product or technology throughout its whole life cycle. In case of energy production systems or power plants, analysis of energy required to produce the materials and processes; emissions resulting from various processes for materials production and processes resulting into their Cumulated Energy Demand (CED) and Global Warming Potential (GWP) become important parameters when making decisions on further research, development and deployment of any technology. The method of carrying out such analysis is explained through a case study.
