GBlist: life-cycle cost analysis

    The issue with "LCA" in the ASTM standard is not life cycle cost
analysis--it is environmental life cycle assessment.  These are very
different systems.  Good references on environmental LCA can be obtained
from the Society for Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC) in
Pensacola, FL. (I could give specific citations if you are interested as
well as other references.) 

   ASTM also has a group working on a standard guide for LCA of building
materials but I suspect this standard will never get through the balloting
