Abstract

In Italy the research activity concerning the environmental compatibility in the building sector is still in progress. The first interests have been focused on the environmental impact caused by the building materials production; in this direction, all over the world different data bases (and rating systems) have been developed. Later on several researches studied the environmental impact of the whole buildings considering the energy consumption during the phase of use. Looking at few years ago, the topic of the environmental impact of the systems for buildings has been ignored, it takes relevance recently with the rating of environmental impacts related to the production and, even more recently, the dismission of system components. Starting from the Italian works about the Lyfe Cycle Analysis applied to the building sector, we aim to propose a methodology to collect environmental data (from energy consumptions to pollutant emissions) regarding every building material and system component in each phase of the building process. Within the Genius Loci Research (Department of Fisica Tecnica – Sapienza, University of Rome) and through a capillary investigation into the territory, we are organizing fill-in forms for the necessary input and output data regarding each phase of the of the building process in order to collect all the data to create an inventory (LCI) and to evaluate the environmental impact during the production phase.
