Sammanfattning

Fire-LCA was invented in response to the need for a more holistic LCA of products containing flame retardants. This chapter describes how to conduct a Fire-LCA, illustrated using three product-based case studies: TV sets, furniture and cables. In the TV-set study a US TV was compared with a European TV, the furniture study compared a European sofa with a UK sofa, while two cables with similar fire performance were compared in the cable study. Finally future trends in holistic assessment of modern products are outlined, including a newly developed cost-benefit methodology.
