Abstract

Life cycle analysis is one of the most used methods to evaluate the environmental impacts caused by a certain product or system. It consists of four phases which follows the requirement set by ISO 14040, which are defining the goal and scope of the research, collecting relevant inventory data for life cycle inventory analysis, conducting the life cycle impact assessment, and interpretation, which can be carried out during the other three phases. There are also various methods to conduct this study, and the one that will be used for this study will be the ReCiPe method, which can display the environmental impacts in terms of 18 impact categories and the damage towards human health, ecosystem diversity, and resource cost. The system that will be studied will be the palm oil mill, the place responsible in production of crude palm oil and other products that may cause harmful effect to the environment. The study will be conducted using the SIMAPRO Version 8 software, which is dedicated towards life cycle analysis. From this research, the environmental impact from the palm oil mill can be assessed and evaluated.
