Methods for Life Cycle Inventory of a product

Life Cycle Inventory analysis (LCI) is defined as a phase of Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) involving the compilation and quantification of inputs and outputs for a given product system throughout its life cycle [1] The concept of LCI has been adopted for cleaner production as early as the 1960s and has had broad industrial and academic application in the last decades [2] Compared to the
