One of the Building Products Innovation Council’s (BPIC’s) goals is to establish a framework for the fair selection of building materials and products. BPIC is leading the building materials and products industry in providing robust Australian Life Cycle Inventory (LCI) data as part of the AusLCI project. Through a program known as the BPIC ICIP project, BPIC is leading a consortia of the Australian Life Cycle Assessment Society and BRANZ in partnership with the Department of Innovation, Science, Research and Industry with the support and participation of BPIC’s major national representative associations. Edge Environment successfully project managed and contributed between 2007 and 2011 to deliver: • A consistent “level playing field” methodology for use in building materials and products Life Cycle Assessments (LCA). • An extensive database of LCI data for building materials and products all compiled in accordance with the methodology. • A database of replacement lives for materials, products and elements of construction used in Australian buildings. • A consistent set of ‘weightings’ for the relative importance of different environmental impacts adapted to the priorities of local stakeholders in different locations and climates.

Life Cycle Model of the Algae Facility at Tarong Power Station. The Tarong Algal Synthesiser Plant Project, a joint venture between MBD and Stanwell Corporation, is exploring how typical power station waste streams (ash dam water and flue gases) could be utilised to intensively grow locally selected strains of algae and to ascertain whether such biomass could be used in animal feed or to make fuel. An Australian-first trial, the project is currently functioning with micro algal culture on Tarong Power Station flue-gas and ash-dam water. “The success of our project can be attributed to the knowledge and insight of Edge” – M.B.Done
