washing machine however, is a highly energy and water intense process that results in a number of negative impacts on the environment. The purpose of this case study is to perform a thorough analysis of the environmental impact of the washing machine. For this reason a life cycle assessment (LCA) is conducted for a state of the art washing machine
Mobile Equipment Life Cycle Costing is a practical guide for managing the economic life of a mining truck fleet. It covers key financial, commercial and physical aspects of truck management and explains specific methods for acquiring and operating these vehicles to full advantage.
Embodied Energy In an Aluminum Bicycle Life Cycle. Bicycles are often perceived, as one of the greenest forms of transportation, but what most of us fail to consider is the underlying amount of energy that goes into producing a bicycle. We chose to look at the embodied energy of a bicycle to see just how sustainable they really are.

The objective of a Reliability Excellence assessment is to examine and evaluate current reliability processes and practices as compared to industry-accepted best practices. The assessment scores 29 performance centers linked to the five levels of the Reliability Excellence Model and rates the organization on a reactive to proactive scale.
The set of potential tools include risk assessment, life-cycle assessment, benefit-cost analysis, ecosystem-services valuation, integrated assessment models, sustainable impact assessment, environmental justice, and present and future scenario tools. This list is not meant to be comprehensive, nor will all of the tools be useful in all cases.
Mining of iron ore is a highly capital- and energy-intensive process. Life cycle assessment (LCA) of the mining and mineral processing of iron ore in Australia was carried out in this chapter using SimaPro LCA software as a case study.
