Summary

The Environmental and Economic Plant Optimization (Ökologische und Ökonomische Betriebs-Optimierung, ÖBO) helps to assess environmental and economic impacts in the run-up to investment and realization processes. As it is based on the principles of Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) and cost accounting it delivers important clues concerning both ecology and economy. In that way the Environmental and Economic Plant Optimization constitutes a helpful instrument to prepare strategic and integral decisions on a management level.
