Jul 02, 2020  The life cycle above reflects a linear model of production, also known as a cradle-to-grave life cycle. An LCA can also account for other models of life cycles, such as cradle-to-cradle. This describes a circular economy, where the end-of-life phase feeds directly into a new life cycle, often through a value retention process like remanufacturing .
