For its potential to facilitate the development of cutting-edge technologies with enhanced environmental performances, projected useat basic levels of life cycle analysis (LCA) technological readiness levels (TRL) has attracted enormous interest in recent literature. But the normal LCA standards find it very difficult to evaluate developing technologies, necessitating methodological advancements in the present LCA framework due to inadequate data, questionable functioning, scale-up problems, and uncertainties. We review published literature in this paper to identify major methodological challenges and key research efforts to address these issues, with a focus on recent developments in five key areas: cross-study comparability, data availability and quality, scale-up issues, uncertainty and uncertainty communication, and assessment time. Additionally, we provide a number of suggestions for further study to assist in the assessment of new technologies at low technical readiness level: (1) the creation of a uniform framework and reporting procedures for life cycle assessments (LCAs) of developing technologies; (2) the incorporation of additional tools with LCA; and (3) the creation of a data repository for cutting-edge materials, procedures, and technologies. Decision-making techniques, such as multicriteria decision analysis, risk analysis, and techno-economic analysis.
