Current LCA practice and circular economy principles sometimes seem at odds - do we need a different tool? Or does LCA need to evolve?.
Methane-oxidizing bacteria (methanotrophs) are a well-characterized and significant global sink for methane. Less appreciated is their capacity to assimilate CO2, yet both capabilities have significant implications for greenhouse gas models and biotechnology. By modifying their environments, these bacteria produce co-polymers, such as polyhydroxybutyrate-co-hydroxyvalerate (PHBV), a biodegradable, nontoxic biocompatible plastic.Register Today!
"The Fall Boot Camp that included Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), Sustainable Return of Investment (S-ROI), and Sustainability Integration classes offered through EarthShift Global provided unique perspective and insight into these burgeoning fields. I was pleasantly surprised by such an engaging and adaptive training which was applied to each participant's discipline through in-class examples. I recommend this training for anyone who wants to improve their understanding of LCA, S-ROI and Sustainability Integration programs which can be immediately applied to environmental and economical-friendly initiatives within their own company."
