A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
Nowadays, product designers, manufacturers, and consumers consider the environmental impacts of products, processes, and services in their decision-making process. Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) is a tool that assesses the environmental impacts over a product’s life cycle. Conducting a life cycle assessment (LCA) requires meticulous data sourcing and...
Fossil fuels are the dominant form of storable energy, but their share in the global energy supply is slowly diminishing due to climate mitigation policies. Alternative energy production from variable renewable energy sources for both stationary and mobile use requires some form of energy storage. Batteries are the current frontrunner for this appl...
Nowadays, decision-makers, including product designers, manufacturers and consumers, are interested in knowing the environmental impacts of their products, processes and services. Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) is a tool that assesses the environmental impacts of a product system over its life cycle. An Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) is one o...
Provide the processing value chains in the raw materials sector with an integrated assessment tool, more precisely the project will: - Develop an optimized software solution integrating three commercial software packages: Granta Selector (Ansys Granta), HSC Chemistry (Metso Outotec) and openLCA (GreenDelta); - Integrate guidance for the recyclability of materials in the software; - Enhance the industrial capacity in the raw materials value chain to use LCA and thermo-economic information (innovation, footprints and handprints); - Advance the development of criticality and circularity indicators methodologies and its integration in the software; - Prepare education material using the results of the methods and technology development. Keywords | raw materials; assessment; indicators; criticality, circularity; recyclability Lead partner | University of Bordeaux Co-leaders | HZDR and GreenDelta Other partners | University of Waterloo, TNO, Metso Outotec, Ansys, Eramet and Eramet Norway Funding | EIT Raw Materials
