Whitepaper_IMA LCA Study_Coverbild

In 2013, the IMA published the study "Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of Magnesium Components in Vehicle Construction," which was written by the Institute of Vehicle Concepts of the German Aerospace Center. This report details the results of the update.

The study analyzed the entire life cycle of magnesium components for transport applications. This includes the production of primary magnesium, alloying, component production, the use phase and the end of life of magnesium components. The focus of the study was on the use of magnesium in passenger vehicles and aircraft components.
