The Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) is organising a half-day course on Life Cycle Inventory and Carbon Footprinting with Professor Gordon Robertson FAIP as course presenter.
The training course will be held on Wednesday the 10th of November in Sydney, New South Wales.
About the course
The half-day training course will provide a comprehensive introduction to Life Cycle Inventory (LCI), an inventory that identifies and quantifies energy and resource use as well as environmental discharges through the entire product life cycle.
Resource inputs, energy requirements as well as releases to the air, water and land for each step in the manufacture of a product or process are quantified from the extraction of the raw materials to ultimate disposal of the wastes.
At the completion of the half day training course, participants should be able to:
- Understand what Life Cycle Inventory (LCI) is
- Be aware of the strengths and weaknesses of LCI
- Examine real LCIs that have been performed on actual packages
- Have a basic understanding of PAS 2050 and carbon footprinting
