Life cycle assessment (LCA) was conducted based on the cradle-to-gate approach (Module A1-A3), where the whole production phase of the Mahaphant fibre cement roof covering product was considered in this study. System boundary: The Declaration includes the product stage modules, A1 – A3, which are: 1) A1 - raw material extraction and processing, processing of secondary material input; 2) A2 – transport to the manufacturer; and 3) A3 – manufacturing. The product stage is set to include those processes that provide the material and energy inputs into the system and the following manufacturing and transport processes up to the factory gate as well as the processing of any waste arising from those processes.
