Deliverable 1.3 - Final LCA

Abstract

The deliverable 1.3 “Final LCA” is part of Task 1.2 “Life Cycle Assessment”. The objectives of Task 1.2 are:

  • Carrying out a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) to compare the environmental performance of existing systems with novel approaches developed within RES URBIS.
  • Identifying hotspots and key parameters in the system to orient further research activities and/or improved data collection.
  • Addressing how waste variability and other uncertainties affect the assessed performance of the developed concept.

The present deliverable D1.3 describes and reports the outcomes of the second phase of Task 1.2, where a consolidated LCA is performed and recommendations on the RES URBIS biorefinery are drawn. The results are supported with sensitivity and uncertainty analyses, as well as with scenario analysis to identify important aspects that should be taken into consideration during future decision-making.
