LIFE-2-ACID Project has been presented in the 10th International Conference on Life Cycle Management (LCM), held during last 5 – 8 September 2021. The University of Cantabria has participated with an oral communication entitled “Consequential vs. attributional approach to the LCA of zinc recovery from spent pickling acids” in the session “Benefits of retaining materials and their quality in a circular economy – Case studies”.
LCM 2021 stands for covering the entire Life Cycle from raw material extraction through production and use phase to end-of-life options. The LCM conference series is one of the world’s leading forums for environmental, economic, and social sustainability. More than 600 scientists and practitioners from over 40 countries gathered online. In this context, the Project LIFE-2-ACID evaluates the environmental impacts of the LIFE-2-ACID technology using consequential and attributional approaches to the recycling credits.
