Abstract

The use of specific tools to quantify the sustainability of products and services is essential in order to develop human activities that are profitable for both society and the environment. To this purpose, Life Cycle Sustainability Analysis (LCSA) is being developed as a holistic tool to evaluate environmental, economic and social impacts of one product or service throughout their full life cycle. The methodology employed in this work is based on the LCSA Analysis approach and has been applied to evaluate the sustainability of a Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) plant based on HYSOL technology, an innovative configuration that delivers improved efficiency and power dispatchability. This work responds to the need expressed by the scientific community to test LCSA methodology in different products and sectors.
