The theme for the 23rd SETAC Europe LCA Case Study Symposium is Life Cycle Assessment for Decision Support.

Life Cycle Assessment for decision support.

The focus of these two days is on case studies that highlight both solutions and challenges when applying consequential modelling for comparisons of products, projects, and strategies. The various sessions of the scientific programme cover all aspects of the application of LCA to decision making in business practice, environmental product declarations, due diligence, social responsibility, environmental management, and policy development.

The programme consists of 6 plenum sessions on the topics detailed below, each composed of 7 oral presentations and around 45 minutes for a moderated plenum discussion. There will be no parallel sessions. This year a new concept for poster sessions will be put in place: Posters will be produced, reviewed and presented electronically; symposium participants can view posters in advance of the symposium and choose (by prioritised web-reservation) which posting presenters they wish to interact with during the posting sessions that takes place each day during the lunch break.

Session topics:

  • Consequential modelling in policy-making, Input-Output databases, and economic models
  • Marginal suppliers and temporal aspects of consequential LCI modelling
  • Views on consequential EPDs and PCRs
  • Co-product substitution and other aspects of consequential LCI modelling
  • Model uncertainty and quality assurance in LCA
  • Challenges for teaching consequential LCA and communication of results
