Aligning life cycle assessment methods and bio-based sectors for improved environmental performance
The ALIGNED project will deliver a modelling framework to assess and optimise the environmental and socioeconomic performance of bio-based industries. ALIGNED will advance the scientific field of Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) (moving from TRL2-3 to TRL5) and collaborate with industries and representatives from five bio-based sectors: construction, woodworking, textile, pulp and paper, and bio-chemicals.

A4F will apply the advanced LCA methods developed within the project, evaluating their performance and added value in a real-world case study of the blue biobased industry. This will involve zooming in on the case of microalgae-based products and then zooming out to the algae production industry as an emerging sector within the blue bioeconomy.
