12 July 2021 News AZL Admin

Your solution for the dilemma of choosing the right material with a reasonable environmental impact.

AZL has teamed up together with Conbility GmbH and fka GmbH to offer you support in LCA consulting as a new individual service in finding the right material while maintaining a reasonable environmental impact.

From Component Definition and Design as well as Mechanical Analysis to Costs and Sustainability Indicators of Manufacturing and Life Cycle Assessment the three companies will cover all aspects to analyze your case.

4 service modules for LCA-supporting consulting – to be combined or to be used 1-by-1

The first module “Component Definition and Design Analysis” will be used to, based on the reference component, choose suitable materials, create a structural layout and define concepts for the component and the production.

Within the module 2 “Mechanical Analysis” the component concept is analysed regarding its main load-cases. This analysis is used to optimize the structure and determine the material quantity which needs to be used and thus the weight of the part.

In Module 3 “Manufacturing Costs and Sustainability Indicators” the production scenario is modelled and the production costs are assessed. Sustainability factors (e.g. CO2 equivalent) are calculated in a pragmatic approach to have first indications.

The Module 4 is used to assess the GWP in all steps like productions, use, end-of-life. Different scenarios e.g. drive train configuration or mileage can be defined. Subsequently a comparative analysis of the layout and assessment of state-of-the-art concepts and new concepts are done and the ecological performance is compared.
