In this study, a cradle-to-gate life cycle assessment (LCA) has been evaluated for the selective surface of solar collector which is commonly used in the production of renewable energy. The plant construction and production stages are investigated along with the use of technology and the recycling of raw materials in this assessment. The new production process is continuous and differs from the conventional batch systems in the respect. Product eco profile is obtained based on data from a live prototype plant in Istanbul, Turkey and its environmental impact is analyzed.
