Life cycle assessment

The DILIGHT project intends to generate a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) that compares the environmental impacts of alternative materials/processes for the production of automotive and selected engineering components. Specifically, the project will compare the environmental impacts of conventional cast iron and aluminium alloy components with those to be made using the DILIGHT alloy. The anticipated output is an unequivocal statement of the environmental benefit of the DILIGHT alloy.
