Toxicity seminar Access to the slides and the recordings here

Note that the seminar was broadcasted live to about 60 participants from all over the world. This initiative has enabled us to avoid the emission of 133 tonnes of CO2. This is equivalent to the average emissions of 13 Danish individuals for one year.

Toxicity aspects in life cycle assessment

Impacts from chemicals that are applied or formed and emitted during the life cycle of a product or service still constitute a weak point in LCIA. Compared to other impacts covered in LCA, chemical impacts are associated with large uncertainties and omissions both in the inventory analysis and in the modelling of both indoor and outdoor emissions to impacts on human health and ecosystems.
The graduate school 3R (Residual Resources Research) at the Technical University of Denmark is organising a two-day seminar on toxicity aspects in LCA. The event will include a technical seminar on day 1, and a short course introducing the UNEP-SETAC toxicity model "USEtox" on day 2. The seminar will be given by experts in the field (see below in the programme) and is targeted to any stakeholder concerned with or interested in toxicity LCIA, ranging from Ph.D. students to LCA practitioners, decision-makers, method developers, and experts from related fields.

Greenhouse Gas and Waste Management
Emissions & Mitigation
3R Annual Seminar
(Glostrup, Copenhagen, Denmark)

This is the third annual seminar, organised by 3R. This year, the theme of the seminar is greenhouse gas and waste management, emissions and mitigation. This is an important topic, as the waste management sector has a small but significant contribution towards anthropogenic climate change. The waste management sector can also play an important role in some mitigation measures. This technical seminar will present some of the findings from our 3R PhD fellows in the context of greenhouse gas emission and mitigation.

We are honored to have three distinguished speakers:

  • Dr Jean Bogner, Coordinating Lead Author (CLA) for the Waste Management chapter for the IPCC Fourth Assessment Report (AR4), Working Group III [Mitigation].
  • Per Christensen,  Professor at the university of Aalborg
  • Jens A. Hansen, Professor (Em.) at the university of Aalborg and editor-in-chief of Waste Management and Research Journal

The IPCC and the UNFCCC are running the international conference of the parties (COP15 ) in Copenhagen and we see this technical seminar as an initial milestone towards the COP 15 next year.

Waste Incineration Residues: from emission to impact

Organised by
3R (Technical University of Denmark)
Hosted by
Vestforbrænding Energy from Waste Plant
Ejby Mosevej 219, 2600  Glostrup, Denmark

Waste incineration has gone through tremendous developments within recent decades: flue gas cleaning technologies have improved dramatically and residue management has changed significantly over the years. With increasingly stringent limit values for air emissions, higher pollution potentials are routed to the solid residues. This requires more attention to the management and the potential leaching from these residues. To address this issue, the main Danish incinerators have, together with DTU, investigated residue management options and leaching potentials from typical incineration residues, and put this into a life-cycle perspective. To bring forward additional perspectives and insights, experts from the Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology or EAWAG (Annette Johnson, Switzerland) and DHI (Ole Hjelmar, Denmark) have been invited.

We are grateful to Vestforbrænding for providing the venue, refreshments and lunch for the day.

From Waste Collection to Waste Disposal
A Life Cycle Thinking Perspective
3R Annual Seminar

This is the second seminar organised by 3R. The objective of the seminar is to show the importance of Life Cycle Thinking in waste management and understand the practical implications of waste LCA research in waste management policy. Raffaella Bersani from DG-JRC, responsible for the EU LCA platform, has been invited to present an update on the situation of the Life Cycle Thinking at the EU level.

7 February 2007
The objective of the seminar is to present the latest research findings with the participation of Professor Thomas Christensen, Assistant Professor Sander Bruun and PhD student Alessio Boldrin. 3R will also have the privilege to get a better understanding of the situation of compost at the EU level with a presentation by Dr Enzo Favoino, who has been involved in a number of European policy projects concerning biotreatment.

5 October 2006
2006 International research seminar on WASTE CHARACTERIZATION at Technical University of Denmark, Lyngby, Copenhagen

International experts from Sweden, Germany and Denmark present and discuss scientific and practical issues related to characterization of solid waste. Focus is on sorting and sampling of waste, subsampling, sample preparation and chemical analysis. Statistical issues and representativity are also discussed. Data from actual studies are presented as well.
