WG 5: Life cycle, Impacts, Risks

Chair: Aleksandar Jovanovic (Steinbeis R-Tech)


Scope and objective of this WG

  • risks in/of innovation (e.g. risks of unexpected side-effects)
  • risk of non-performance or performance below expectations (e.g. risks of system or component failures)
  • risk of adverse/unexpected effects and impacts (e.g. on public health and/or environment)
  • risks over the life-cycle of products and technologies (e.g. unexpected problems in decommissioning or recycling phase)
  • project risks, especially in innovation, R&D and new technologies oriented projects

Analysis of the contribution of the life cycle stages to the overall environmental load to prioritize improvements on products or processes.

The above is done in particular for advanced/new materials and materials technologies applied in:

  • new emerging technologies (e.g. CO2, H2, nanotechnologies...)
  • petro chemical and process plants
  • power plants

Main standards referred to by the WG are the ISO 14044 and the guidelines of the EU (e.g. ILCD/ELCD) covering the following main aspects:

  • Defining the goal and scope of the study
  • Making a model of the product life cycle with all the environmental inflows and outflows (life cycle inventory, LCI stage)
  • Understanding the environmental relevance of all the inflows and outflows (life cycle impacts assessment, LCIA stage)
  • Interpretation of the results
