This webinar will discuss parametric cradle-to-gate Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) tool for ductile iron casting to help the industry reduce its environmental impacts and to help product designers make informed material selection decisions. The model is developed based on input from the literature, physics-based extrapolations, and recent material and energy data from 11 U.S. foundries representing 26% of the U.S. non-pipe ductile iron industry.
