Life Cycle Assessment Methods for Building Materials’ Recovery and Reuse


Bradley Guy & Benjamin Holsinger teach at The Catholic University of America in the School of Architecture and Planning.  They have been working on the Life Cycle Assessment Methods for Building Materials Recovery and Reuse.

They measured the carbon footprint of building material reuse. They focused their study on Community Forklift a reuse center in Edmonton, Maryland.

The above slide shows the CO2 emissions created and reduced by Community Forklift operations.

If you are a reuse center professional, start looking into carbon offset opportunities like the kind they create at Bonneville Environmental Foundation.

Because according to this chart, your reuse center could have an entirely new source of income potential in selling carbon off-sets.
