Overcoming Barriers to Uncertainty in LCA
Presented by Jeremy Gregory of MIT
There are three main barriers to incorporating uncertainty into LCA:
1. there is limited guidance on how to conduct an uncertainty analysis,
2. characterizing uncertainty is difficult,
3. people have a hard time processing outcomes of uncertainty analyses.
