Life Cycle Assessment for early career researchers
Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) is becoming an ever more important tool in assessing the environmental performance of product systems and processes in materials science. LCA is a relatively new field with LCA methodologies and research constantly evolving. Currently, LCA studies are mostly conducted by experienced LCA practitioners or consultancies, and for early career researchers new to the subject, it can seem like a minefield. This webinar will give an overview of LCA for materials science, its advantages and controversies, followed by an open discussion about participants' LCA experiences.
