Life Cycle Assessment of Precast Concrete Units

Precast concrete has also been adopted in Europe, Singapore and Japan [7]. Although pre-casting is regarded as a more environmental friendly option, it is unclear if the environmental performance of precast concrete can outperform that of cast in-situ concrete. Life cycle assessment (LCA) is a method to assess the
