A life cycle analysis (LCA) is a study of all aspects of a glass product, starting with the collection of raw material, and the impact the product has on the environment, including what it takes to manufacture the product and what the product does once it is finished and in use. An LCA can include information about the resources needed to maintain and repair the product, as well as recycling and/or disposal of the product when it can no longer be repaired.
