  • Technology Researchers Listen Up: We Can Help Make Your Processes Environment-friendly

    Bio4EnergyBio4Energy SAB AnnaStrom2020x500Bio4Energy system analysis researchers at Umeå can help applying life-cycle assessment on bio-based technology projects. Illustration by Bio4Energy© 2020. system analysis researchers at Umeå, Sweden have joined up to issue guidance on the way in which life-cycle assessment (LCA) may be applied to technology-based projects in the areas of advanced biofuels, ‘green’ chemicals or bio-based materials, in line with the topical focus areas of the research environment.

    In a new compendium, which starts with an introduction to the LCA method and the need for its application, they outline finished and ongoing LCA-to-biomass projects shepherded by two expert teams at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) and Umeå University, respectively.

    “It shows the work that has been done in Bio4Energy and informs technical researchers of the possibilities afforded by applying LCA to technology-based projects”, said This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., Bio4Energy researcher at the SLU.
