This webinar recording is now available here.
We invite EBNet members to join us for this FREE online workshop – brought to you by the Process Integration and Sustainability Assessment Working Group. Join us for 3 hours of top level content. Featuring top speakers from academia and industry this workshop is led by Professor Jhuma Sadhukhan, University of Surrey. Speakers include: Dr James Joyce, Unilever; Dr Adrian Higson, NNFCC and Dr Siddharth Gadkari, University of Surrey
“Life Cycle Assessment Tools for Environmental Biotechnology” – 12 Dec 13.00-16.00 GMT. Registration is now closed.
This workshop will cover:
- life cycle assessment (LCA) tools
- how to define an Environmental Biotechnology problem to do an LCA
- and how LCA results can be used in decision-making on Environmental Biotechnology problems
It is ideal for industry practitioners and academics looking to incorporate LCA thinking into their business or research.
The aim of the Process Integration and Sustainability Assessment working group is to create awareness of theme 3: Technology Interfaces of the EBNet.
We are holding the first online workshop of the Process Integration and Sustainability Assessment working group on 12 Dec 1-4pm on life cycle assessment (LCA) tools, how to define an Environmental Biotechnology problem to do an LCA and how LCA results can be used in decision-making on Environmental Biotechnology problems. 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.
