Scoping workshop - Glasgow, 2013

Towards consensus about the delimitation between life cycle inventory and impact assessment in LCAs with pesticide and fertilizer use (agricultural field emissions)

This workshop attempts to establish broad consensus about the delimitation between the life cycle emission inventory and impact assessment for agricultural applications of pesticides in life cycle assessment (LCA). The workshop is organised back to back with the SETAC Europe conference in Glasgow, UK.

When and where 

11-May-2013, 8:00 - 19:00, Glasgow, UK

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 and Quantis with the support of the EU project TOX-TRAIN and the USEtox team.
