Life Cycle Assessment

This course will introduce you to Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) methodology, a tool to assess the environmental impact of products and systems over the whole product life cycle, from cradle to grave. Learners will review the potentials and limitations of quantitative LCA compared to other assessment tools.

Leading actions in several industrial sectors (agriculture and foods, automotive, personal care products, and energy) will be examined through relevant case studies in order to demonstrate how effective environmental life-cycle assessment leads to new product development.
