Abstract

The aim of the paper is to research a potential of Life Cycle Assessment utilization in the area of outbound transport of metallurgical products. The potential is identified by means of a case study from a metallurgical company producing hot rolled heavy steel plates. Environmental impacts, specifically greenhouse gases emissions (carbon footprint) and at three endpoint indicators (human health, ecosystems, and resources) were researched. Two Life Cycle Impact Assessment methods were used for that purpose: IPCC 2007 GWP 100a and ReCiPe.

Keywords: Green transport, outbound transport, Life Cycle Assessment, metallurgical products
