IVB-R16 LCA
Life Cycle Analysis and Assessment

October 15 - 19, 2012
Beijing, China

Lecturer: Leo Breedveld

The course is part of a modern and modular European Master and Certification Program set up in the EU project iNTeg-Risk by Steinbeis University (STI Advanced Risk Technologies) and other project partners.

The course gives the participants opportunity to improve the knowledge about the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) and to gain the skills to perform simplified LCA studies and to analyze, discuss and comment international scientific articles on LCA. The course provides a comprehensive overview of the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), Life Cycle Costing (LCC), International Reference Life Cycle Data System (ILCD) and European Reference Life Cycle Data System (ELCD). The focus will be on practical examples of applying LCA in industry and improving the environmental performance and sustainability of products and services.

The course will highlight the details of

  • LCA methodology and application
  • the techniques and the tools needed for the LCA analysis
  • standards ISO 14040 and ISO 14044 and international development.

During the course many examples will be elaborated, including the ones related to the emerging risks and, furthermore, participants will develop their own examples using standard LCA software.

In the end of the course the students are expected to:
  • have basic knowledge about LCA methodology and application
  • know the link between LCA and HSE
  • be familiar with the most important concepts and terminology used in LCA
  • have skill to perform simplified LCA using some of most commonly used software tools.

Engineers (university level), managers, inspectors, legislators and other professionals dealing with HSE and HSEE will have the opportunity

  • to enjoy discussions with the main lecturer
  • to learn about the newest developments in the area of the international (ISO) standards and the EU approaches (e.g. "Life Cycle Thinking" and the "decoupling indicators")
  • to participate in the hands-on breakout sessions, including use of LCA tools (SimaPro) and
  • to ask about practical details of examples dealing with LCA for bio-fuels, advanced engineering materials, nanomaterials and other new technology related products.
