Northwestern University’s Science Café presents
The Full Cycle
Life-Cycle Assessment Expert Looks for Sustainable Solutions
Presented by Assoc Professor Eric Masanet
Chemical and Biological Engineering, Mechanical Engineering
Which is better for the environment: Paper or plastic?
Local or imported foods? Printed or digital media?
Answering such questions requires a holistic environmental analysis approach known as life cycle assessment (LCA).
And when we perform an LCA, the answers can sometimes surprise us.
Come join us to learn about how LCA works, who's using LCA to make decisions, and how it's been applied to provide science-based answers to some interesting environmental questions.
You may never look at products the same way again!
Free parking across street.
You can order and eat dinner during the presentation. The burgers are great!
