Last Date 22 09 2016
Event 20 09 2016 - 22 09 2016
Place Montpellier, France

The 22nd SETAC Europe LCA Case Study Symposium is one of this year’s essential events for the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) community, gathering experts, practitioners, scientists, and policymakers from business, academia, government and NGOs. The 22nd edition of this classic LCA conference was held from 20-22 September 2016 in the gracefully Mediterranean city of Montpellier in Southern France and was co-organised by SETAC Europe and the two industrial chairs on LCA “ELSA-PACT”/Irstea (France) and CIRAIG (Canada).

With the overarching theme of Life Cycle Innovation for the Transition to a Sustainable Society the scientific programme was designed to provide every opportunity to share and learn about business practice, application experiences and challenges, LCA’s increasing role in governance, and the latest developments in methodology and teaching of LCA.

Over 170 abstracts were submitted from more than 20 countries on three continents, resulting in more than 120 oral presentations scheduled in 17 sessions covering the LCA aspects of subjects like emerging technologies, agriculture, buildings, water, transport, energy supply and storage, recycling, PEF, ecodesign, resource management, LCA of large-scale systems like cities or regions, life cycle management, policy evaluation, LCIA modelling, uncertainty, teaching LCA, or social LCA and life cycle sustainability assessment.

Both LEITAT and ICRA participated at the event and presented demEAUmed project. LEITAT made a presentation and a poster regarding the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) tasks within the project, while ICRA had a platform presentation on environmental and water-saving impacts of on-site water reuse in hotels.
