IMA Launches New Magnesium LCA Study: Setting Sight on Lowering CO2 Emissions


Product Information

For automotive and other OEMs to achieve their sustainability declarations (e.g., "Zero Global Impact" models), they need to take into account the sustainable sourcing of materials and components along the complete supply chain. Because of this, calculating the global environmental footprint through accurate life cycle assessment (LCA) is becoming an important decision tool for all stakeholders.
