The purpose of the project is to evaluate the impact on the environment by a Coal Washery in India and recommend ways to increase their eco-friendly factor. The project basically has four features – Goal and Scope, Life cycle inventory, Impact assessment & Interpretation. Life Cycle Inventory (LCI) analysis involves creating an inventory of flows from and to nature for a product system. Inventory flows include inputs of water, energy, and raw materials, and releases to air, land, and water. Inventory analysis is followed by impact assessment. This phase of LCA is aimed at evaluating the significance of potential environmental impacts based on the LCI flow results. Life Cycle Interpretation is a systematic technique to identify, quantify, check and evaluate information from the results of the life cycle inventory and/or the life cycle impact assessment. The results from the inventory analysis and impact assessment aresummarized during the interpretation phase. The outcome of the interpretation phase is a set of conclusions and recommendations for the study.
