recycling is to save energy. Every product out there, recyclable or not, contains a certain amount of embodied energy. Embodied energy is defined as the total amount of energy that is required in order to produce a product, and it is commonly thought of as be-ing incorporated into the product itself. This embodied energy is

An LCA could include one or any number of these stages. The process of calculating the embodied carbon of a building can be divided into a cradle-to-gate LCA (A1–A3) and a cradle-to-cradle LCA which covers only one part of the life cycle, e.g., construction process (A4–A5) . The process of performing an LCA is primarily done in four stages.
