This course is designed to help experienced LCA practitioners move to the next level by digging into difficult issues and working through real problems with the help of leaders in the field and fellow students. The course is always different as it takes its content from the needs of the attendees. You will be exposed to the latest thinking in LCA, including the conflicting views of those in the forefront of LCA development as well as clearly identified biases on the part of the instructors. Starting from the premise that we can learn something from many different ways of considering the same problem, students often find ways to make their studies more robust as well as new ways to create value from their work.
Topics may include:
- Leveraging parameters for rapid scenario analysis and sensitivity testing
- Modeling and interpreting recycling and the use of recycled materials
- Developments in Impact Assessment methods
- Leveraging midpoint, endpoint and single scores for better decision-making
- Introduction to Consequential modeling
- Anticipatory LCA
- Carbon sequestration in LCA
- Preparing your report for critical review
- Interpretation: sources of uncertainty, model evaluation and/or identifying significant issues
- Others as requested by the attendees
