ASSESSMENT AND IMPROVEMENT OF THE URBAN WATER CYCLE ECO-EFFICIENCY USING LCA AND LCC www.life-aquatik.eu

Eco-efficiency-ISO14045

The Aquaenvec project was launched in order to integrate both environmental and economic indicators under the eco-efficiency framework and to analyse the application of these methodologies to the urban water cycle activities.

The Eco-efficiency is defined by the ISO 14045:2012 as the relationship between the environmental impact of a product or system and its value. Many different options can be handled in order to give an indicator to a product or system value. Nevertheless, this project proposed the integration of Life Cycle Assessment environmental impact indicators with economic indicators coming from a Life Cycle Costing methodology application.
