Consensus workshop - Bordeaux, 2015

Estimating initial pesticide emission fractions for use in life cycle assessment

This workshop attempts to finalize the consensus building process on how to model in LCA the fractions of applied pesticides that enter air, water, soil, and agricultural crops as emissions. The workshop is organised back to back with the LCM 2015 conference in Bordeaux, France.

When and where 29-August-2015, 8:00 - 19:00, Bordeaux, France

Who

Over 30 experts from all continents working with/on LCA (application or method development), or representing pesticides producers, users, or regulators.

Organizers 

The Technical University of Denmark, Irstea and Quantis with the support of the EU project TOX-TRAIN.
