INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE OF ANAEROBIC DIGESTION

Si sono tenuti nel 2018 due interessanti convegni in cui il prof. Marco Fiala e il dott. Luca Nonini, dell’AgriFood LCA LAB, hanno presentato due studi dal titolo:

INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE OF ANAEROBIC DIGESTION: The environmental sustainability of Anaerobic Digestion: where we are? 

11° International AIIA Conference: “Biosystems Engineering addressing the human challanges for the 21° Century” – Carbon storage assessment in Valle Camonica forest ecosystems: the first step to promote a local Voluntary Carbon Market (VCM) for climate change mitigation

23° SETAC Europe LCA Case Study Symposium

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

Bioenergie e sostenibilità ambientale

agro-food LCA LAB
biogas, digestione anaerobica,

Una recente review “Agricultural anaerobic digestion plants: What LCA studies pointed out and what can be done to make them more environmentally sustainable” pubblicata su Applied Energy compara i risultati ambientali di 105 studi LCA condotti negli ultimi 15 anni.

Negli ultimi anni, gli impianti di biogas alimentati con biomasse agricole si sono notevolmente diffusi anche grazie agli incentivi pubblici previsti per la generazione di energia elettrica da fonte rinnovabile. In Europa, 29 paesi prevedono forme di incentivazione per la generazione di elettricità da biogas, nella maggior parte dei casi si tratta di feed-in-tariffs.  Nel 2014, secondo EurObserv’ER, circa 8.2 TWh di elettricità sono stati prodotti dai 1713 impianti di biogas in funzione. Ciò pone l’Italia in seconda posizione per quanto riguarda lo sviluppo del biogas agricolo dopo la Germania, che, con 8726 impianti, 3905 MW di potenza elettrica installata e 29 TWh di elettricità prodotta è il primo produttore mondiale di energia elettrica da biogas.
