This chapter discusses the utility of applying the life cycle assessment (LCA) methodology to fibre-reinforced composites. The chapter first introduces the main advantages of shifting from traditional petroleum-derived polymer composites to bio-derived polymer composites. LCA methodology is then described as a useful tool to evaluate the environmental impacts of products and processes. Some case studies are reported on LCA of polymer composites used in the automotive and building sectors.
