Life-cycle Assessment (LCA) and Safe and Sustainable-by-Design (SSbD)
WS.IV.4 - TT.VIII.A - WS.II.8
Co-organized with Polytechnic University of Turin & University of Milan
Chairs: Chairs: Marzia QUAGLIO, Polytechnic University of Turin & Claudia Letizia Maddalena BIANCHI, University of Milan
The global shift towards sustainable energy systems necessitates comprehensive methodologies for evaluating environmental impacts and ensuring safe and sustainable development. This symposium integrates Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) and the Safe and Sustainable by Design (SSbD) framework within the context of the energy transition. LCA offers a robust approach to quantifying the effects on environments associated with energy technologies across their entire lifecycle—from resource extraction through to disposal. In addition to environmental consideration, a comprehensive evaluation of the impact of novel technologies must also consider the social dimension. Social Life Cycle Assessment (S-LCA) methodologies are promising tools for the evaluation of the social impact of technologies, products and services, through qualitative and semi-quantitative approaches. The afore-mentioned life cycle assessment methodologies are crucial for the design, development and production of clean, sustainable and safe chemical and materials. The SSbD framework emphasizes the proactive design of energy systems and technologies to minimize environmental harm, enhance safety, and ensure compliance with sustainability goals. This symposium focuses on state-of-the-art strategies for the assessment of environmental and social impacts, highlighting benefits and limitations of  the current approaches through the presentation of case studies. Key findings underscore the importance of interdisciplinary collaboration and continuous innovation for the development of reliable assessment methodologies, which will serve as guidelines for the design of safe and sustainable innovative material sand technologies.
