Regionalised LCA of territorial food supply: assessing the environmental performance of French contrasted scenarios up to 2050.

Recently, the French agency for ecological transition (Ademe) proposed contrasted prospective scenarios to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050 including a focus on the food sector. However, these studies remain focused on climate change and do...

Comparative prospective life cycle assessment of emerging technology combinations for hydrogen production in Germany by 2045

According to the International Energy Agency’s net zero emissions plan, worldwide hydrogen demand will reach 520 million tons by 2050 [1]. Currently, the reference process is steam methane reforming from natural gas, which emits approximately...

Using Prospective LCA for the Assessment of Circular Economy Measures

To reach the defined climate targets, it is essential to transform the sector with the highest share in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions – the energy sector. This transformation comes with an expansion of newly built...

EcoTransparency app case study: Analyzing influence of implementing prospective research data in industries life cycle assessment

The Siemens Energy EcoTransparency app based on life cycle assessment (LCA) empowers us to visualize the environmental performance throughout the entire life cycle of our products and solutions. By identifying significant environmental impacts throughout all...

Systems Evaluation of a Prospective Decentralized Hydrogen Production Technology for Rural Areas

The transition towards sustainable energy sources demands innovative solutions tailored to diverse contexts, including rural areas or regions lacking robust infrastructure. This study presents an evaluation framework for a prospective technology aimed at decentralized hydrogen...

Ex-ante life cycle assessment of cellulose nanocrystals production from waste biomass: implications of applying different upscaling approaches

Session 14: Life Cycle Innovation in the Bio-Economy
Nanocrystalline cellulose is a nano-structured biomaterial often applied in biopolymers to enhance technical performance. Cellulose nanocrystals (CNC) have been obtained in the laboratory from lignocellulosic wastes, e.g., mango seed shells [Ref.1]. Assessing the environmental impacts...
