Brought to you by the Process Integration and Sustainability Assessment Working Group, their second webinar will introduce the methodologies involved in performing a Life Cycle Assessment for the EB sector. This webinar is led by Professor Jhuma Sadhukhan, University of Surrey.
“LCA for Biotechnology Problems: targeted fundamental methodology” – 16 March 10-12.00 GMT.

The aim of the Process Integration and Sustainability Assessment working group is to create awareness of theme 3: Technology Interfaces of the EBNet. The first online workshop of the Process Integration and Sustainability Assessment working group was 12 Dec 1-4pm on life cycle assessment (LCA). Find the recording HERE. Technology Interfaces cut across the other two themes of the EBNet: Pollutants and Media; and Biosciences for Engineering. The main driver for this theme is to translate the outcomes of environmental biotechnology into societal benefits. For this, systematic appraisal at a whole process flowsheet level as well as supply chain system level is necessary using a whole range of sustainability criteria. Even though a process may look promising at a laboratory scale, its scale-up could be challenging, and so could process integration and sustainable development in reality. Many technical, environmental, social, and economic considerations have to be taken into account and analysed using tools and methodologies, which are sometimes more standardized and at other times more fundamental.
