WP7 Environmental Credentials Assessment

The objective of WP7 is to carry out a thorough environmental evaluation of products and processes developed within the INNOBITE project, through the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), Life Cycle Cost (LCC) and Environmental Technology Verification (ETV) tools. 

These analyses will provide quantitative information on the sustainability of the new technologies over their whole life cycle. It is expected that the LCA analysis reports the positive environmental impact derived from using agricultural derived wastes rather than current commercial technologies. 

Also a positive impact should be noted in key environmental aspects such as energy usage, raw materials utilization and water needs. The ETV should lead to objective quantification improvements of the technology to water/energy/raw materials usage.
