Many companies are unaware of the size of the risks with regard to Critical Raw Materials (CRM’s) in their products or processes. In order to reduce their environmental impact due to legislation, demands of customers, stakeholders or intrinsic motivation, Life Cycle Assessments (LCA: an analytical tool used to model the environmental impacts) are conducted on these products and processes supported with quantitative information. LCA can provide information of the positive impacts of recycling, remanufacturing and re-use. However, a classical LCA is complex, usually for specialist, and requires expensive software. The aim of Innomat project is to develop an innovative LCA/CRM 2-day course that makes LCA and CRM analyses more accessible by SMEs, and other industries and easier to use.
