Life Cycle Assessment (using WRATE)

Paul & James are trained and experienced in the use of the WRATE Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) software tool for the determination of environmental impacts. WRATE is published by the Environment Agency and is considered to be the recognised industry tool for LCA determination (for more information on the model see http://www.environment-agency.gov.uk/research/commercial/102922.aspx). Frith RM holds an Expert WRATE Licence and regularly develops bespoke technologies and conducts peer reviews for multinational waste management companies in procurement exercises or as part of Strategic Environmental Assessment.

We use WRATE Life Cycle Assessment for determining the carbon and other environmental impacts of collection systems, recycling systems, waste treatment and disposal.

It can be used as a quantitative tool for carbon impact assessment, ecological footprint or other environmental measures to support options appraisal and Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA).
