  "description": "<p>New developments in the field of wood protection, coupled with the European political determination to lower the environmental impact of the building sector, designates wood and bio-based materials as an excellent option for building fa&ccedil;ades. Despite that, the share of wood in the European wood construction market is low, with the exception of some North European countries. For that reason, it is necessary to increase a confidence in bio-based fa&ccedil;ades by demonstrating their environmental performances during and after the service life by means of solid scientific tools and experimental evidences. As a pilot study, we investigated the interactive LCA in two maintenance scenarios (high and low intensity), assuming two diverse cladding bio-materials (untreated sawn wood and chemically modified wood). A dedicated software tool was developed for the needs of these analysis allowing dynamic simulation of environmental impact and immediate visualization of the LCA contributions. The end-of-life options were assessed with a different approach. Firstly, several alternative scenarios for re-use that are available on the market were identified and listed. Secondly, we established a weightbased expert system expressing importance/advantage of each scenario in order to classify each end-of-life option according to its provision of environmental benefit. Finally, we assessed the suitability of each defined end-of-life option for all evaluated bio-based materials.</p>",
