Life Cycle Assessment of Mechanical and Physical Method Used in Recycling Process of Waste Thermosetting Phenolic Laminated Plastic Based on GaBi Software

Abstract:

Article Preview

Based on software GaBi4.3, life cycle assessment method is used to analyze the abiotic depletion, energy consumption and environmental emissions of recycling process of 1kg waste thermosetting phenolic laminated plastic. This paper also takes advantage of CML2001 provided by GaBi to assess the environmental impacts through the recycling process. The result shows that the rank of environmental impact is: Regeneration> Molding > Crush; the main environmental impacts are global warming potential, acidification potential and eutrophication potential.
