Every year, the total of plastic industry in Indonesia grows rapidly. Not only giving positive effects on economic, but industrial development also causing a negative impact on the environment. Those negative impacts are caused by inefficiently using of resources and industrial waste which could pollute the environment. Therefore, it is necessary to calculate the impact itself by using the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) method. The LCA could help us to take better decision to improve the production process and products which could minimize the energy consumption and resources. PT XYZ is a plastic injection company. This company hasn't collected, calculated and analysed their products and production process which may contribute to environmental damage. Therefore, this study will collect the data about the potential environmental impact which caused by the product of PT XYZ. LCA was performed at plastic car battery container type "X" and type "Y" using IMPACT 2002+ method in SimaPro8 software. The result of data calculation showing that the potential environmental impact is more dominant in these categories: respiratory inorganics, non-renewable energy, and global warming. The component which caused the greatest potential for respiratory inorganics and global warming is coming from electrical energy consumption (lignite).
