The 2012 edition of SETAC Case Study Symposium is “Sustainability assessment in the 21st century – tools, trends and applications”. Focus on sustainability of products and corporations has been increasing over the last decade. For this reason, the symposium will focus on the experiences gained in industry and academia on the application of LCA and on the application of new tools such as environmental “footstep” assessments for sustainability assessment.
LEQUIA researchers will give two oral presentations on the application of LCA to urban water cycle, and on life cycle inventories data base “LCADB.sudoe”.
