A research project to apply LCA methodology to an Italian dairy firm was recently carried out. The main project objective was to develop a simplified methodology for introducing environmental concerns based on a life cycle approach in industry decision-making. The company was selected on the basis of the economic importance of the agro-industrial branch in Emilia-Romagna region and its technological representativeness. The entire activity is carried out under the technical and scientific supervision of ENEA (Italian National Agency for New Technology, Energy and the Environment), ERVET S.p.A. (Regional Agency for Industrial Policies), the Department of Business Administration and the Department of Applied Chemistry and Material Science of Bologna University.In this paper the methodological approach and the preliminary results of the study are discussed.
