Life Cycle Assessment: LCA of lead-based batteries for vehicles
With environmental performance now considered one of the important factors in evaluating a product, the key players in the supply chain for lead-based automotive batteries have commissioned a study to assess the impact of this product in its various applications on the environment including its Global Warming Potential.
This Life Cycle Assessment study was commissioned by EUROBAT, ILA, ACEA, JAMA and KAMA, which together represent the majority of Europe’s battery and automobile manufacturers, along with Japanese and Korean automobile manufacturers and the international lead industry. PE International has therefore made a comprehensive evaluation of the three main automotive battery types from a cradle-to-grave perspective, and reported on their life cycle environmental performance.
