Breakfast webinar: A life cycle based chemicals assessment toolbox

A life cycle based assessment toolbox to assess and improve the safety and sustainability of chemicals. That is the focus of this breakfast webinar, which is part of the series arranged by the research programme Mistra SafeChem. Life cycle thinking is key in the programme that has the aim to enable and promote the expansion of a safe, sustainable and green chemical industry.

The toolbox is applicable to life cycle based alternatives assessment (LCAA), chemical footprint and life cycle assessment (LCA). Focus lay on the two ecotoxicity and toxicity impact assessment tools ProScale and USEtox, including both environmentally mediated, consumer- and workplace-related toxicity. The toolbox is used in a variety of case studies performed within the programme.

We especially welcome representatives of the Swedish industry to learn more about the Mistra SafeChem work for greener chemistry and the progress so far.
