Abstract

This study provides an environmental Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of the production of Single Use Plastic Products (SUP) and the production of alternative Single Use Non Plastic Products (SUNP) and their waste management in Denmark, in 2018.

The commissioner of this study is the Danish Environmental Protection Agency (Miljøstyrelsen) and the study was conducted by DTU (Danmarks Tekniske Universitet) Environment in the period August to October 2018.

The LCA was modelled using EASETECH, a software developed at DTU Environment for the environmental assessment of waste management systems. The LCA has been conducted according to the requirements outlined in DS/EN ISO International Standards 14040 and 14044; however, the report is not intended to strictly comply with the standard.
