The project “review of methods addressing water” aims at reviewing and performing a systematic qualitative review of existing methods (environmental models, characterization methods, and life cycle impact assessment methods) linked to the assessment of water use. This work looks at similarities and differences between the characterization methods, identifies the key elements to be considered when modeling the cause effect chains in water assessment and provides indications for deriving operational characterization methods and factors to assess water use in LCA. Scientific recommendations as well as industrial interim recommendations on inventory modeling, midpoint and impact assessment methods are formulated to support practitioners in their short term application.

Nyckelord: Life cycle assessment, freshwater use, method review, human health, ecosystem quality, resources
