The ALIGNED project and SUSTRACK project continue their partnership to provide better, shared knowledge about standardisation, certification, labelling and monitoring the Life Cycle Assessment and other related disciplines. Last week, in the context of the EU Green Week, Massimo Pizzol, from Aalborg University, took the floor to represent ALIGNED during the workshop “Limits, barriers and solutions to boost the transition towards a circular bio-based economy” organised by the SUSTRACK project.
Science Approach to Close Sustainability
The SUSTRACK work is looking for the development of a comprehensive literature research on the limits of the linear fossil-based economy, and barriers to the sustainable transition. Within this framework, the ALIGNED project, as a focus group participant, had the opportunity to share its findings, and insights associated with its approach related to Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) in five different bio-based sectors. Several stakeholders that took place in this event had the opportunity to make their voices heard and identify, discuss, consolidate, and prioritize the identified barriers, acquiring valuable insights about a sustainable transition in several industries.
In the words of Massimo Pizzol, the ALIGNED project technical coordinator: “The EU Green Week provides us with a special framework to highlight our efforts to develop a common, and enhanced knowledge of different scientific methodologies. We want to express our congratulations to the SUSTRACK project for this workshop, which has provided many valuable insights to all the stakeholders involved in this joint effort that is a sustainable transition in different industries”.
