Carbon footprint assessment of products, processes and/or services based on Life Cycle Analysis.
What we offer:
The Advanced Technology Innovation Centre (ATIC) in Tarragona, Spain has developed the expertise to determine the carbon footprint of products, processes or services based on Life Cycle Analysis (LCA).
ATIC has a demonstrated expertise in the calculation of carbon footprint and its collaboration with Rovira i Virgili University ensures the last research developments will update the method used for the calculation of carbon footprint. Based on LCA, the method ATIC uses to determine the carbon footprints will allow the company to identify strong and weak points in its operation and also its most pollutant suppliers. This information can be then combined with financial data
to determine the least efficient parts of the operation, allowing the client to become more
efficient and more sustainable at the same time.
Tracking of the carbon footprint over time allows the client to make informed decisions of interventions and provides a paper trail to prove its commitment to industrial and/or legal standards.
The expertise ATIC offers can be applied to any industrial operation, including manufacture, transport & logistics, waste treatment, etc. and services providers.
What are we looking for:
The type of partner sought is any company with an interest in green operations.
- Task to be performed by the partner sought: data collection for the assessment and joint development of the method for further needs.T
