Description:

This report describes the life cycle assessment on a potential replacement solvent blend for aircraft radome depainting at the Oklahoma City Air Logistics Center at Tinker Air Force Base. The life cycle assessment is composed of three separate but interrelated components: life cycle inventory, life cycle impact assessment, and life cycle improvement assessment. This study uses a comprehensive approach, encompassing all energy requirements, solid wastes, atmospheric emissions, and waterborne wastes associated with the production, use, and disposal of the depainting solvent. The life cycle inventory quantifies these values. The partial impact assessment uses a classification system to categorize the atmospheric and waterborne emissions into the relevant potential impact categories of ecosystem and human health. The improvement assessment uses results from the inventory and impact assessment along with a cost analysis to evaluate the improvement alternatives. This report was submitted in fulfillment of Contract No. 68-C4-0020, WA 1-07, to Lockheed Environmental Systems & Technologies Company from Lockheed to Franklin Associates, Ltd., under sponsorship of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. This report covers a period from January 1995 to July 1996, and work was completed as of July 1996.
