The method for modeling material recycling can have a decisive impact on the environmental assessment of products with a high content of recycled material or material that is recycled after use. How recycling should be modeled in LCA has been discussed since the 90's but no consensus has yet been reached. The project is expected to result in increased competence and in consensus on certain aspects of the modeling of recycling in LCA.
