Webinar: How should recycling be modeled in LCA?

Date:Tuesday, 19 May, 2020 Time:10:00 - 11:00

Welcome to this webinar that will give you insight on important results from the project Modeling of Recycling presented by Tomas Ekvall (Chalmers & IVL), project manager, together with participants in the consensus process as well as case study partners.

About the project:

The method for modeling material recycling can have a decisive impact on the environmental assessment of products with a high content of recycled material or material that is recycled after use. How recycling should be modeled in LCA has been discussed since the 90’s.

The project Modeling of Recycling, led by Tomas Ekvall at IVL Swedish Environmental Institute and Chalmers University has gathered life cycle professionals from academia, research institutes, industry and government agencies to increase the knowledge on how recycling can be modeled in LCA where 21 organizations are being involved.

It has led to increased knowledge among Swedish industrial companies and authorities about how recycling should be modeled, and it also contributes to the ongoing debate and the development of the EU Guidelines for environmental impact of products and other international harmonization of the LCA methodology.
