Life Cycle Assessment (LCA)

The Holistic Environmental Assessment Method for Products and Services

Learn to represent and quantify material and energy flows as input or output values in the various life phases of a product, a procedure or a service. Furthermore, you will acquire the skill to apply the tool Life Cycle Assessment for value chain-oriented decisions in process optimization.

Course Content

Various phases of LCA and their areas of application
Autonomous implementation of life cycle assessments
Development of standardized methods for account balancing according to DIN norm
Interpretation of LCA analyses and evaluation of improvement potentials

Group of Participants
Engineers and/or project leaders from the areas of production, environmental management, research and development or strategic management with at least one year of relevant professional experience.

Motivation
Taking on a leading role in environmental protection and thus remaining competitive in a climate-sensitive environment requires many industrial companies to implement key measures to reduce environmental impacts. Suitable activities are determined by a detailed environmental assessment: The so-called "Life Cycle Assessment" offers a commonly accepted and highly effective method to that end.

Methodology
In five days of attendance, participants will learn to evaluate analysis results and to evaluate potential for improvement through lectures and the independent performance of an LCA study. Your new knowledge is complemented by a company visit and introduction to the GaBi software, including a corresponding application exercise.
