The 86th LCA Discussion Forum

EMPA invites you to the Discussion Forum on LCA: “Safe- and Sustainable-by-Design” on the 25th of April.

During the day, practical and conceptual presentations will be combined, and give you enough time for discussion with the various presenters.

The day starts with an overview of the SSbD concept where the fundamentals and the strategy are introduced along with its operationalisation. The next section focuses on the integration of safety issues covering hazard and risk assessments together with the models/descriptors that facilitate such an assessment. Sustainability considerations are addressed in the third part, followed by practical examples, showcasing SSbD applications together with a panel discussion on these first experiences in the application of the concept.

The forum overall provides participants an in-depth understanding of SSbD and what the role of LCA is, enabling meaningful discussions and fostering further development.

There is a time slot allocated for short presentations (5 to 10 min. each, depending on the number of applications). If you are interested in giving a short presentation, please send a short abstract (max 200 words) to lcaforum@ethz.ch.
