Abstract: In order to perform an impact assessment of land use within the framework of Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) it is necessary to register the ¿amount¿ of land use in Life Cycle Inventories. This chapter aims at developing a guideline how to quantify land use elementary flows in LCA. For that it distinguishes between land occupation and land transformation. A proposal is made how to standardize the land use classification and how to regionalize land use elementary flows.
