The role of life cycle assessment for chemical recycling deployment and policy decision-making


Chemical recycling refers to an emerging and diverse group of technologies for which there is a need for well-founded data to assess their potential contribution to circularity and decarbonisation. To support decision-making and investment processes, life cycle assessment (LCA) is a key tool for assessing the impacts of these technologies. This event will aim to discuss the role of LCA for chemical recycling development, the available evidence from existing LCA assessments and their key messages for policy decision-making. Further issues to be discussed are how to improve the comparability of LCA for different CR technologies and how to address existing gaps in terms of boundary conditions used in these assessments.

Issues to be discussed:

• Contribution of LCA for chemical recycling to decision-making and investment processes
• Existing evidence from LCA applications and key gaps
• Challenges in terms of transparency and comparability of published LCA studies

This event is part of the CEPS Initiative on Chemical Recycling.

Time: 16:00 – 18:00 CET (10:00 – 12:00 EST Eastern Standard Time), online
