PhD course 20 - 24 June 2016: Advanced LCA - consequential modelling, EIO LCA, iLUC and social LCA
The course introduces to advanced inventory modelling using the techniques of consequential LCA and input-output (IO) LCA. The students will apply algorithms for performing consequential LCA in the definition of functional unit, consumption mix, and identification of determining and dependent co-products. Then, the students will apply IO LCA to create hybrid inventories combining monetary and biophysical flows, and learn how to this technique is applicable to a range of purposes from mass-flow analysis to life cycle costing. The course continues by bringing the above mentioned theories further into practice on two specific cases: modelling of indirect Land Use Changes (iLUC) and socio-economic impacts. The course aims at strengthening skills in life cycle inventory analysis and targets the development of advanced competences in LCA.
