LIFE CYCLE INVENTORY UNCERTAINTY IN RESOURCE-BASED INDUSTRIES - A FOCUS ON COAL-BASED POWER GENERATION
The aim of this thesis is to develop an approach to support prospective environmental decision-making in resource-based industries. The specific focus is on coal-based power generation. The objectives of the approach are that it be able to adequately reflect the environmental burdens arising from primary industries, and to make explicit the trade-offs often encountered in environmental decisions. In addition, it needs to take into account that the context in which the assessment takes place affects data availability and quality significantly, and consequently the certainty with which systems can be evaluated.
