USEtox conference: Toxicity aspects in Life Cycle Assessment

Conference held at DTU
8-9th April 2010

Impacts from chemicals that are applied or formed and emitted during the life cycle of a product or service still constitute a weak point in LCIA. Compared to other impacts covered in LCA, chemical impacts are associated with large uncertainties and omissions both in the inventory analysis and in the modelling of both indoor and outdoor emissions to impacts on human health and ecosystems.
The graduate school 3R (Residual Resources Research) at the Technical University of Denmark is organising a two-day seminar on toxicity aspects in LCA. The event will include a technical seminar on day 1, and a short course introducing the UNEP-SETAC toxicity model "USEtox" on day 2. See the full programme here.
