The ALIGNED Project to Showcase Innovations at SETAC Europe 34th Annual Meeting

The ALIGNED project is participating in the upcoming Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC) conference in Seville, Spain. With over 2,600 environmental scientists from across the globe expected to attend, this event stands as a premier gathering in the field of environmental toxicology and chemistry, both in Europe and worldwide.

During the conference, members of the ALIGNED project will present two posters on May 6 as part of the session titled session “Innovations in LCA: Bridging Temporal Dynamics and Advancements in Inventory Data Modeling “. The first poster, titled “Carbon Flux Forest Model Extended to Multiple Species and Forest Management Practices: Data and Validation,” will be available for the unique platform for environmental professionals and students to engage in the exchange, discovery, and discussion of cutting-edge research on a global stage. This will be followed by a presentation on “Assessing Methodological Choices in Wood-based Biorefinery LCA Literature.”

2nd LCA Methodology Workshop Web

ALIGNED 2nd ALIGNED LCA Methodology Workshop

Join us for an engaging online workshop on Friday the 3rd of May 2024 from 10:00-12:00.

Life Cycle Assessment is an essential decision-making tool towards sustainability. The EU Horizon Europe ALIGNED project looks at LCA methodology and aims for improvements in LCA applications in the bio-based sector. In this workshop we would like to inform you of our progress, test our research approach, and learn about the challenges, opinions, and ideas of LCA practitioners and other stakeholders.

In this free online workshop, we plan to discuss two topics:

•        General overview of the LCA methodologies developed in the ALIGNED project

•        More in depth: Embedding for future technological change in background inventory data


10:00 – 10:20            Welcome & Introduction to the ALIGNED project
