RHEO-LIGHT Sintesi della relazione

Project ID: G1RD-CT-2002-03012
Finanziato nell'ambito di: FP5-GROWTH
Paese: Italy

life cycle assessment of the new technology

LCA (Life Cycle Assessment) is a fundamental issue in developing a new technology.
According to the experimental results, a complete analysis of the benefits in terms of processing and manufacturing with respect to other technologies will be accomplished. This will reveal opportunities for industrial production of rheocast components, taking into account the related environmental benefits with respect to the main competing technologies.

CRF has a lot of experience and knowledge in this field: a special workgroup work every day in this field. The results given within the project on rheocasting and alternative processes will be the first complete study (from raw material to final component and end-of life component) that will be used as a basis for further technology study and development.
