EuCIA Eco Impact Calculator for Composites

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The method of Life Cycle Analysis is a standardized procedure to allow the calculation of the environmental footprint related to a product, a process or a service in terms of key impact parameters. Since composites are key enabling materials for lightweight and other unique applications, it is essential to understand its environmental footprint. EuCIA, with assistance of EY CSS and Biinc, has responded in developing the web based, free Ecocalculator Tool, (http://ecocalculator.eucia.eu), that can be used by manufacturers, academia and authorities without the specialism that is required for full Life Cycle Assessments. This session will present both the method as well the results of this calculation reflecting a broad range of industrial applications.
