Abstract

The building and construction sector quantifies the environmental impacts of buildings using the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) method. To put LCA into practice often simplified application of the LCA method is used, without considering timely aspects. Instead, the method dynamic LCA includes timely aspects, which are more complex in the modeling and thus difficult to apply. To investigate the consequences of using the dynamic LCA method, this study develops a tool that takes data available in a simple LCA tool that follows the standardized LCA method and calculates dynamic LCA results. The tool reimplements the calculation engine from the simple LCA tool and adds the more complex aspects of dynamic LCA afterward. Doing so makes it possible to add other complex methods to the original calculation engine to help investigate more complex methodological aspects in the future.
