Event Details

14 years since the first Conferencia Internacional de Análisis de Ciclo de Vida en Latinoamérica, the 8th iteration of the conference series will return to Costa Rica, where it originated in 2005. The 2019 international conference is jointly organized by RICV, Association for LCA in Latin America (ALCALA), and the Costa Rica National Life Cycle Network.

CILCA 2019 has adopted as the overarching central topic “LCA: Global Competitiveness” to frame the discussions and exchanges on an array of sub-themes relevant to the regional context such as the following: life cycle and the international agreements; life cycle methodology and its applications to agriculture, building and energy sectors, fishing and marine litter, tourism, mining, procurement, education and lifestyles, just to name a few; as well as applicable tools such as eco-design and circular economy and much more.

The structure of the international conference considers special meetings, courses, and workshops to be held just prior to CILCA on July 15 and 16. The Opening Plenary is to happen on the morning of July 17 and continuing with other plenaries and parallel sessions up to July 19, with closing and award ceremonies. During the whole week, the showroom for CILCA-EXPO 2019 welcomes sponsors to promote their innovative products and services. On July 20, local organizers offer guided tours for those interested on technical and/or tourist visits to nearby sites.

As per other CILCAs, the participation of public and private organizations from all sectors and different countries, including researchers and decision makers, as well as students, is expected.
