NORSUS at the WasteLCA conference

WasteLCA conference in Italy

Pieter Callewaert and Kari-Anne Lyng from NORSUS participates this week at the WasteLCA conference in Italy.

The conference is held for the third time and gathers experts from several countries working with LCA and waste resources.

Pieter gave a presentation with the title Analysing the environmental performance and improvement factors of plastic packaging recycling systems, while Kari-Anne has presented Collection system's impact on environmental performance of the waste management system.

Kari-Anne presented the environmental impact associated with various collection systems for food waste and plastic, which are results from the research projects Innovative Waste Logistics and DGRADE. The analysis will be able to provide useful input by introducing stricter sorting requirements for food waste from households.

Pieter and Kari-Anne agrees that this type of conferences is important for international networking and professional development.

“At this conference we meet researchers working with the exact same topics as we do, and we get valuable input to assessments that we are working with."
