FOREWORD On behalf of the Organizing Committee of the V International Conference on Life Cycle Assessment - CILCA 2013, we provide these proceedings which collect the contributions of the various authors, the marrow of this event. Since the first edition in Costa Rica in 2005, CILCA has become a periodic conference, well established and internationally recognized, which provides a framework for the dissemination of knowledge generated by the research groups, consulting firms, and technical centres. But the most important thing is the framework provided for the meeting for discussion, cooperation and generation of new ideas that drive year after year new projects and joint publications. In this process of consolidation and growth, CILCA incorporates new activities and offers a wider range of options for its participants. Options not only academic, but also recreational that help make Cilca more "sustainable", through the establishment and strengthening of networks. This year, the recreational activites will feature a starring role by the wine from Mendoza: the visits to wineries, wine tastings, lunch at Altavista winery and dinner accompanied with good wine are some of the optional activities included. To the classic courses, oral and poster technical sessions, plenary lectures and panel discussions, this year we added a PhD Workshop, which offers postgraduate students a space for discussion and exchange of experiences that will enrich their research with input from experts in the topics. We hope you enjoy this valuable material, and the demanding program we propose. For those unable to attend the event, we hope these memories will be useful, and we hope we will meet them in the next CILCA. Alejandro Paul Arena Barbara Civit March 2013
