Paper Title:
Life Cycle Improvement Assessment of Al and Mg Diecasting Processes
  Abstract

To comply with the growing demand for life cycle environmental effect, life cycle assessment (LCA) was carried out for producing A356 aluminum alloy and AZ91D magnesium alloy diecastings. The main emphasis was placed on the improvement assessment for aluminum and magnesium diecasting processes and the comparison between the two competitive processes. The process evaluated was based on yields of finished parts relative to the metal input. This is important both from the environmental point of view and the commercial point of view because the environmental data are sensitive to the design of cast parts and the efficiency of the diecasting operation.
