In the present paper, we investigated a sandwich composite as a potential electromagnetic interference shielding wall panel for buildings. The panel was built using a ferrite-particle modified high density polyethylene in a sandwich assembly enabling electromagnetic shielding properties. The life cycle assessment (LCA) approach was employed here to assist in the production phase and in the materials selection, in order to obtain an environmental friendly final product. An optimization of the constituents of the sandwich structure is proposed by comparing the environmental impact of different potential solutions without influencing the EMI shielding properties.
