This study analyzes the scientific literature on Life Cycle Assessment-based (LCA-based) industrialization and commercialization of geosynthetics for infrastructures in the field of Industry 4.0, by applying a scientometric study. A set of articles published in Scopus was analyzed through both a quantitative and a qualitative approach. The results are reported in a framework where the main keywords, themes, and topics are identified and discussed. Such results include the analysis of emerging trends and convergence among different themes and topics. In fact, results from the current literature in this area are still evolving and reveal increasingly new trends and themes, opening up new and challenging research perspectives in terms of innovative applications. Moreover, this study identifies the main affiliations and countries contributing to this area, as well as the main collaboration networks among the most prominent authors and geographical areas, thus providing scholars, namely, early career ones, with an indication of the most relevant authors to connect with for their future studies.

Abstract

This study analyzes the scientific literature on Life Cycle Assessment-based (LCA-based) industrialization and commercialization of geosynthetics for infrastructures in the field of Industry 4.0, by applying a scientometric study. A set of articles published in Scopus was analyzed through both a quantitative and a qualitative approach. The results are reported in a framework where the main keywords, themes, and topics are identified and discussed. Such results include the analysis of emerging trends and convergence among different themes and topics. In fact, results from the current literature in this area are still evolving and reveal increasingly new trends and themes, opening up new and challenging research perspectives in terms of innovative applications. Moreover, this study identifies the main affiliations and countries contributing to this area, as well as the main collaboration networks among the most prominent authors and geographical areas, thus providing scholars, namely, early career ones, with an indication of the most relevant authors to connect with for their future studies.
