Economic Input-Output Life-Cycle Assessment (EIO-LCA)

Back to Hybrid methods


An economic input-output life-cycle assessment (EIO-LCA) uses input-output data aggregated on a sector-level, which is then subjected to an LCA. This method allows for a relatively fast understanding of the impacts within the supply chain, albeit at the expense of accuracy due to using sector-level averages.
