Life cycle approach to fridges and fridge replacement

At a very specific level, a US study takes a life cycle approach to fridges and fridge replacement, considering when is the optimal time, from an environmental perspective to replace a fridge.
At a very specific level, a US study takes a life cycle approach to fridges and fridge replacement, considering when is the optimal time, from an environmental perspective to replace a fridge. It concludes that there is a trade off between the optimum replacement period in energy terms and in cost terms with consequent policy implications.
