ABSTRACT
the chosen polyolefins production. The article presents also main tools of eco-efficiency analysis: Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) and Net Present Value (NPV).Design/methodology/approach: On the basis of LCA and NPV of high density polyethylene (HDPE) and low density polyethylene (LDPE) production, eco-efficiency analysis is conducted.Findings: In this article environmental and economic performance of the chosen polyolefins production was presented. The basis phases of eco-efficiency methodology also presented.Research limitations/implications: Eco-efficiency analysis allows economic and environmental assessmentof products or/and technology. Taking into account economic and environmental aspects enables designing and the production of the most eco- efficiency product.Practical implications: Eco-efficiency analysis allows economic and environmental assessment of productsor/and technology. Taking into account economic and environmental aspects enables designing and the production of the most eco-efficiency product.Originality/value: The paper presents eco-efficiency analysis as a new approach to products assessment.The eco-efficiency possibility is valuable for designers and manufacturers to design the most eco-efficiency product or technology.
