Session Abstract


Monday June 20, 2022

Objective: a draft paper!

9 am – overview of progress in the SETAC/ACLCA working group on LCA of Emerging Technologies

9:30 am – brainstorm most substantial issues associated with LCA of emerging tech. e.g.,

  • At what stage of a product development is it reasonable to attempt LCA?
  • How do we handle uncertainty? Is it reasonable to attempt Monte Carlo simulation when data is too limited to craft meaningful distributions?
  • How do we scale up from lab data and experiments?
  • ...

10:30 am – ranking of the most substantial issues (individually, pair and share then as a group)

11 am – break out into groups to work through problem characterization

  • Characterize/describe the issues in more detail
  • List of potential solution approaches (including pros/cons/gaps?)

Noon – lunch
