IncluSilver Conference on Innovation
The IncluSilver Conference on innovation was the final event of the IncluSilver Project. The conference aimed to showcase innovative start-ups and SMEs from all over Europe with presentations by leading keynote speakers. Dubravka Skunca, from the Univerzitet UNION Nikola Tesla (Faculty of Business and Law) offered a presentation on the Life Cicle Assesment aproach of the GreenProtein project.
What is the “Life Cicle Assesment” of a project?
Life Cicle Assesment (or LCA, as it is commonly refered to) is an internationally standardised methodology. It is denifed by the EU Commission as the framework for assessing the potential environmental impacts of a product currently available: pressures, benefits, trade-offs and areas for improvement.
An LCA study takes into account the full life-cycle of the product, has to be consistent, assure quality as well as reflect the actual industrial process chains.
