An engineering approach to quantify the WLCA process will be shared in this presentation.
Through the quantitative analysis of embodied and operational carbon emissions in WLCA, it helps to provide more information to all stakeholders to make an earlier decision on design and construction options, aim to restrict the impact of global warming by mitigating carbon emissions.
