Hi! For my thesis I want to assess different materials regarding their environmental impacts. Simply put: What are the impacts of the material production from different metals to climate change, human toxicity etc.?
My approach is to find the most low-level flows (copper wire), create a process with input copper and output copper wire and create a product system of this, so i can calculate the impacts. It seems to work so far, but I wanted to double-check that this makes sense.
Your feedback is highly appreciated, thank you!
