Abstract

"The environmental planning and the current policy initiatives in European Union are aimed at continuous improvement of. the productive fabric, heading toward a system in which the “quality” of products will no longer regardless of their environmental. impacts. In this context, the methodology of LCA (life cycle assessment) is certainly one of the most innovative methods in the field. of environmental protection as it allows evaluating the environmental burdens associated with a product, process or activity by. identifying and quantifying material and energy consumption and environmental emissions. The objectives focus on finding the main. impacts of the wine life cycle, as well as identifying crucial activities\/stages in the wine production which establish the largest. impacts. This paper’s objective is to expose the advantages resulting from the use of the LCA method in the wine production sector,. with a specific application to wine production in the Tuscany region."
