D7.1 LCA Report

This deliverable contains the results obtained from the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of the two WADI units developed in the project: MAV and UAV.
The main objectives of this deliverable can be summarized in the following points:

  • Perform an inventory analysis by means of quantifying all the energy and material flows, as well as the incoming and outgoing materials (extracted or emitted into the environment) required during the manufacturing processes of the new WADI units and the useful lifetime of the demonstrators involved in the project.
  • Calculation of the most relevant environmental impacts indicators associated with the WADI water leaks detection techniques in order to be compared with the potential environmental improvements that could be achieved thanks to the WADI project development.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement No. 689239
