Eco-efficiency analysis development with life cycle approach for steel production will be discussed in the paper. Eco-efficiency analysis is a tool for quantifying the relationship between economic value of technology or product and environmental impacts over the entire life cycle. The main goal of the eco-efficiency analysis is to compare similar processes, technologies or products. Possibility of applying multicriteria analysis for eco-efficiency assessment will be presented. This paper adapts Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) methodology to undertake an analysis of the environmental dimensions of steel production. The algorithm of Multi-Criteria Decision Analysis (MCDA) using for eco-efficiency optimalisation of steel production will be presented. MCDA allows to take into account the most important criteria of steel production: performance, life cycle of cost, quality of product, environmental aspects, social aspects etc.
