This activity aims to combine the work performed so far in REACH and LCA. It will complement the current design models to provide ESA and European industry a process to link chemical risk information and information on the criticality of raw materials with life cycle assessment and proactively address in early stages risks of supply chain disruptions due to environmental legislation. Furthermore it aims to provide a process to assess the lifecycle impact of the substitution of materials due to REACh authorization efforts and compare to alternative scenarios. The objective of the activity is to analyze REACH and LCA processes, identify key synergies, and propose prototype models and processes for reciprocal benefits: 1. REACH LCA• Analyse and trade-off several options to implement the monitoring of REACH and CRM use through the complete lifecycle of space products using LCA methodology. Develop a prototype full scale LCA model allowing to flag and classify the use of REACH substances and CRMs in different life cycle stages of a space product. • Validation of the proposed solution through application to a test case.2. LCA REACH• Analyse and trade-off options to support REACH authorization efforts (e.g. chemical risk assessment, analysis of alternatives) through complete lifecycle LCA data.
