Webinar on Hybrid LCA - Thursday 25th January

    New Zealand Life Cycle Management Centre presents: 

    Application of hybrid LCA for environmental footprinting-with insights on use of Exiobase v3

    Date:  Thursday 25th January, 2018 - 2:30 pm NZST

    Abstract

    Life cycle assessments (LCA) and Environmentally Extended Input–Output (EEIO) analyses are two common methods to assess the direct and indirect  environmental impacts of products a and processes.  Studies have shown that the use of conventional process based LCA which requires a more detailed inventory development can still potentially underestimate the impacts due to truncation errors. EEIO which considers all transactions between sectors in an economy provides a more comprehensive analysis. Nevertheless, this method suffers from uncertainty due to aggregation in the EEIO database. To minimize the errors associated with both methods the use of hybrid LCA is recommended, which is a combination of detailed process LCA and the comprehensive EEIO.  

    In this webinar we propose to present the application of hybrid LCA for environmental footprinting, with specific focus on new multi-regional EEIO database (Exiobase v3) developed specifically for LCA practitioners
