Completion: December 2011
LyondellBasell Australia Pty Ltd
This project included the completion of a life cycle inventory (LCI) and ISO 14040:2006/14044:2006 compliant life cycle assessment (LCA) study for LyondellBasell Australia Pty Ltd, an Australian polypropylene (PP) manufacturer. This study is the first ISO-14040/14044:2006 peer-reviewed LCA on PP manufacture in Australia. LyondellBasell commissioned the CfD to analyse its manufacturing plants in Geelong (Vic) and Clyde (NSW), representing the entire PP manufacturing base in Australia. The study is a so-called cradle-to-gate study; including everything from the extraction of raw materials (such as crude oil for feedstock) to the delivery of PP granulate at the factory gate.
