Coupling Process Development with Life Cycle Analysis


Juhasz, M., DuPont


Santhany, S., The Dow Chemical Company

Developing sustainable processes is key for the long term viability of our products. As process chemists and engineers working on process development, we have an opportunity to influence the environmental impact of our processes and products by performing early life cycle assessments to guide research and development efforts toward the selection of the most sustainable process options. Additionally, LCA can be used in conjunction with techno-economic analysis to provide cost effective solutions with reduced environmental impacts. This session will showcase examples of how and why life cycle analysis is an important metric for shaping the development of a process or product.
