Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) for Practitioners and the Industrial Community, 30 April 2024, 10:00-16:00 hrs, Chilworth Science Park

Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) for Practitioners and the Industrial Community, 30 April 2024, 10:00-16:00 hrs, Chilworth Science Park

GWP standards, carbon offsetting schemes, carbon footprint calculator and offsetting methodologies and techno-economic analysis (TEA)

Register here. Programme released soon.

This workshop aims to explore with stakeholders the policy landscape for the EBNet community, especially the drivers and incentives for carbon offsetting technologies. How do we define such technologies? What is the methodological landscape for carbon footprint calculators? How are calculated carbon footprints verified? Here, we will focus on ISO14064-65 on greenhouse gas validation and verification methodologies. We will also study the overlap and distinction between life cycle assessment (ISO14040-44) and greenhouse gas validation and verification methodologies (ISO14064-65), with the latter being the methodological backbone for the carbon offsetting schemes.

Whether you are a novice or experienced in LCA, academics, policymakers and industry attendees are welcome to join us. Full information can be found here which includes recommended prereading, excerpted here.

Location: Future Towns Innovation Hub, The Engineering Centre, University of Southampton Science Park, SO16 7PT. Details of Chilworth Science Park, including parking, are here.
