The paper gives an overview of the schedule for outputs from and the potential applications of research to use life-cycle assessment (LCA) principles to evaluate upstream and downstream environmental impacts to evaluate alternative municipal solid waste (MSW) management options. Data will be collected to develop a life-cycle inventory for environmental and cost impacts associated with raw materials acquisition, manufacturing, use and waste management. These data will be used to conduct material and energy balance calculations for multi-pollutants and media for the evaluation of different MSW management options.
