Joint LCA Courses with NNFCC

Life Cycle Assessment Workshops

The NNFCC is the UK's national centre for biorenewable energy, fuels and materials. Committed to the sustainable development of markets for biorenewable products, NNFCC promotes the benefits of biorenewable energy, fuels and materials for enhancement of the bioeconomy, environment and society.

North Energy has joined with NNFCC to deliver one day training workshops providing a basic understanding of Life Cycle Assessment (LCA). LCA is key to understanding the environmental impact of goods and services. If you are interested in learning about LCA and being able to understand and evaluate "green" claims, then these comprehensive one day courses will provide you with a good overview of the methods and issues.

The workshops will cover the drivers and application of LCA, the importance of the ISO 14040 series of standards as the basis for LCA, how an LCA is carried out and issues arising in interpreting the results of Life Cycle Assessments. Introductory and Intermediate courses will be held throughout the year. Advanced level courses are also planned - for full details and to book, please see the NNFCC website.
