The consumption and production activities are one of the biggest factors in all environmental damages, especially in global
warming. Thus, the need to minimize greenhouse gas emissions becomes more and more important in the recent years.
Reduction of CO2 may prove to be one of the most important political and technical challenges faced today. In the recent years,
the use of renewable energy sources to reduce the damage to the environment by reduction of CO2 gradually started to become
widespread. Solar selective surfaces are used in manufacturing of solar collectors and have the main duty in direct heating. Life
cycle assessment (LCA) is a tool to better understand the energy and environmental performance of these systems. In this study,
the environmental performances of the solar selective surface prototype plant in SELEKTİF TEKNOLOJİ Co. Inc. Ltd., Istanbul,
Turkey is analyzed. The new production process is a continuous electrochemical process, which differs from the conventional
batch systems. Data is collected directly from the live prototype plant and managed following international ISO 14040 and 14044
standard procedures to implement carbon management strategies using the Greenhouse Gas Protocol. The aim is to trace the CO2
foot print of SELEKTİF?s eco-profile that synthesizes the main energy along with the environmental impacts related to the whole
product?s life cycle. After compiling an inventory of relevant energy and material inputs, environmental releases and evaluating the
potential impacts associated with identified inputs and releases, CO2 footprint was calculated as low as 0.321 kg/m2.
