International Symposium on Pavement LCA 2014

14 October 2014

Davis, California, USA
October 14-16 2014

This symposium, hosted by the University of California, Davis and the University of California, Berkeley, will focus on the implementation of Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) for pavements. The symposium/workshop will be coordinated with activities of the FWHA Sustainable Pavement Task Group and is also sponsored by TRB sub-committee AFD00(1). The symposium focus is implementation of LCA in pavement operations at the network and project levels. The objective of the symposium is to review current status, identify the extent of consensus, and discuss future developments for implementation of pavement LCA in North America and internationally. This workshop will be a follow up to the 2010 Pavement LCA Workshop held in Davis, California and the 2012 RILEM Symposium on LCA for Construction Materials held in Nantes, France.

Invited presentations will summarize current status and questions for various issues regarding implementation of LCA for pavements. Papers submitted by participants will be presented in poster sessions to facilitate discussion, and will be published in both electronic and book formats. Participants will work in breakout sessions to discuss the objectives listed above.
