LCA - Life Cycle Assesment

Material Life Cycle Assessment is a method used to assess environmental impacts associated with all phases of the material life cycle. In the life cycle assessment, it is handled from the extraction and processing of the raw material of a product, process, or service, to the calculation of the environmental impacts resulting from the production, distribution, and use of the product, to the recycling or final disposal of the materials that make up it.

The widely accepted procedures for the execution of LCA / YDDs are included in the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), in particular the 14000 series environmental management standards in ISO 14040 and ISO 14044.

ERKE continues LCA studies with its specialist team. With these studies, companies can contribute to their sustainability policy and have the advantage to increase the value of its product in the market. 


  • Raw Material Production (Cradle)
  • Production and Processing
  • Transportation
  • Use
  • Waste Disposal (Grave)

With studies made for Life Cycle Assessment, the environmental impacts of product and the stages where the improvements should be made are determined.

After this improvement, environmental performances are compared and the changings in categories of Life Cycle Assessment below can be examined in detail;

  • Global Warming Potential (GWP),
  • Ozone Layer Depletion Potential,
  • Acidification Potential,
  • Eutrophication Potential,
  • Photochemical Oxidation Potential,
  • Non-Renewable Energy Consumption
