Abstract [en]

Risk Assessment and Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) are used to understand the potential health and environmental impacts of the processes involved. The main tasks include: (1) Modelling the release, transport and distribution of contaminants (e.g. particles, fumes, waterborne emissions) to conduct exposure assessments; (2) A number of laboratory experiments (e.g. leaching and ecotoxicity tests) and field studies (at different stages of the life cycle of RA) will be conducted to produce the inventory of emissions from RA; (3) Compiling and characterising the results from the laboratory and field studies for further usage in the risk assessment models and in the LCA study; and (4) Sensitivity analysis as to how these impacts would vary across Europe and the relative importance of different stages in the life cycle. This paper outlines as a baseline scenario, the experiments that will be conducted, the datasets that will be compiled and how they will be used in the assessment of risk and environmental impacts, such as global warming potential, human health and ecotoxicity.
