Objective:

The objective of this research project is to develop and demonstrate an enhanced life cycle assessment (ELCA) methodology that combines LCA inventory and impact analyses, human health risk assessment, and dynamic cost-benefit analysis within a stakeholder-based analytic-deliberative process. The ELCA framework will be demonstrated through application to the treatment of metal-rich waters through enhanced wetland technologies at a site near the Tar Creek Superfund in northeast Oklahoma.
