Abstract [en]

To understand the reasons behind the large environmental impact from  buildings the whole life cycle needs to be considered. Therefore, this study  evaluates the carbon dioxide emissions in all stages of a single-family house  in Sweden from the production of building materials, followed by construction  and user stages until the end-of-life of the building in a life cycle  assessment (LCA). The methodology applied is attributional life cycle  assessment (LCA) based on `One Click LCA' tool and a calculated life span of  100 years. Global warming potential (GWP) and primary energy (PE) are  calculated by using specific data from the case study, furthermore the data  regarding building materials are based on Environmental Product Declarations  (EPDs). The results show that the selection of wood-based materials has a  significantly lower impact on the carbon dioxide emissions in comparison with  non-wood based materials. The total emissions for this single-family house in  Sweden are 6 kg CO2e/m2/year. The production stage of building materials,  including building systems and installations represent 30% of the total  carbon dioxide equivalent emissions, while the maintenance and replacement  part represents 37%. However, energy use during the in-use stage of the house  recorded lower environmental impact (21%) due to the Swedish electricity mix  that is mostly based on energy sources with low carbon dioxide emissions. The  water consumption, construction and the end-of-life stages have shown minor  contribution to the buildings total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions (12%). The  primary energy indicator shows the largest share in the operational phase of  the house.
