Researcher Conversation Series – LCA


“LCA Approach to Estimate Household’s Technology Metal Footprint”

Xiaocheng (Sam) Hu

Sam’s life cycle analysis (LCA) work focuses on estimating the quantities of a comprehensive range of physical products UK households purchased and the waste generated between 2011 and 2020, including food and drink, EEE, textiles and more.

This talk will delve deeper into WEEE and show you the estimated consumption, stock, and waste of technology metals that are contained in the analysed EEE products — and the estimated environmental and economic impacts of these metals. To close, he will discuss the challenges and data gaps of analysing the end-of-life stage of EEE products.
