|Outline of Final Research Achievements
Technology options for producing materials and energy have widely been developed and should be implemented into society. The suitability of such technology options must be carefully examined with the current regional characteristics such as local resources, infrastructure, regulations, and stakeholders. While the information of technology options under development is not sufficiently clarified, the system design and assessment should be conducted on the future possibility of available options, otherwise the mid- and long-term strategy cannot be enacted for social systems. In this study, pre-emptive life cycle design (LCD) was proposed to assess the technology systems options for sustainable materials and energy production. Case studies on various technology options were conducted and demonstrated that the pre-emptive LCD enables the system design based on their future possibilities on environmental impacts and local circulation.
