Application of LCA methodology to the CLT panels made according to a short chain production process and definition of the benchmarks for environmental impact indicators



This paper describes the research activities related to the study of LCA methodology applied to the sector of construction and related to possible improvements and developments in this context. The research has provided a first step of analysis of the state of the art and a second one of verification of the methodology through the application to a case of study represented by the CLT panels produced by a company of Friuli Venezia Giulia. Subsequently, a critical analysis of the work was conducted and were proposed qualitative guidelines for the definition of benchmarks for the interpretation of the LCA results.
