How can a basic LCI-database for sustainable turbomachinery manufacturing be developed?

Challenge and Motivation

  • Resource and energy efficiency are drivers of the turbomachine industry in order to strive for a more ecological sustainable product and process development. However,
    • the view and assessment of what is considered "sustainable" can vastly differ between industries.
    • the achievement of sufficient LCI-data makes high quality LCA-results considerably challenging.


  • Assessment of specific and general ecological hot-spots in terms of energy and resource consumption.
  • Development of ICTM specific LCI-data base.
