Holistic and Integrated Life Cycle Sustainability Assessment in Bioeconomy

Session 14: Life Cycle Innovation in the Bio-Economy
Currently the social, environmental and economic risks and challenges of the bioeconomy are becoming increasingly the subject of applied sustainability assessments. Based on the life cycle assessment (LCA) methodology, further approaches were developed whereby life...

Assessing an industrial bio-based network in Central Germany with an integrated life cycle approach

Session 14: Life Cycle Innovation in the Bio-Economy
Over the last five years, the Department of Bioenergy at UFZ has developed a series of life-cycle-based for assessing the bioeconomy system, establishing a toolbox for systems analysis that combines traditional life cycle methodologies with...

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...

Environmental Impacts Arising from the Production of Microbial Biosurfactants Rhamnolipid and Mannosylerythritol Lipid

Session 14: Life Cycle Innovation in the Bio-Economy
Increased use of assessment methods, classifying the environmental impacts of novel products, already in their development phase, reflects today’s growing interest in sustainable products. Especially bio-based development of widespread products like surfactants in the context...
