The life-cycle assessment of the project, also considering the hardware developed in WP3, WP5, WP6, WP 7 and WP 9 will be done in coordination and participation of technology developers. The environmental and other impacts will be analysed in accordance with the guidelines of ISO 14040 and ISO 14044. Environmental responsibility is sometimes not considered and are avoid and overtake law demands and good practices. However positive externality is important to measure and identify its impact. Possible undesired consequences such as global warming potential, toxicity to humans and to ecology, possible depletion of resources will be investigated. As the stages of LCA, scope and the targets will be defined. Then after the development of relevant inventory inputs and outputs, potential impacts will be assessed. After the assessment, results will be interpreted regarding the proposed targets and relevant recommendations will be drawn.
