The ALIGNED project aims to improve the environmental performance of bio-based industrial processes in five sectors by harmonizing and promoting the use of LCA. ALIGNED will develop a modeling framework to conduct high-quality assessment studies with industrial relevance and interoperability across the biobased sectors. The ALIGNED framework will allow accurately to model key aspects not covered in current practice: the competition for biomass and for land, dynamic and time-specific carbon accounting, and biodiversity and socio-economic impacts. Furthermore, future energy and resource scenarios derived from integrated assessment models will be developed.
The project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon Europe research and innovation programme and is coordinated by the Aalborg University in Denmark.
