AbstractThis lecture deals with the methodological basics and application of various environmental assessment tools.
ObjectiveAfter attending the lecture, students know environmental assessment tools, such as material flow analysis, risk assessment, and life cycle assessment. They can identify and apply the appropriate tool in a given situation. Also, they are able to critically assess existing studies.
Content- Stofffluss- / Materialflussanalyse
- Chemische Produktrisikoanalyse
- Ökobilanz
- Umweltfragestellung und Entscheidungsprozesse: Praxisbeispiele
Lecture notesSkript und Übungsunterlagen werden auf Moodle bereitgestellt.
Prerequisites / NoticeDie Lehrveranstaltung ist aufgeteilt in Vorlesungsstunden und Übungsstunden.

AbstractThis lecture deals with prospective assessments of emerging technologies as well as with the assessment of long-term environmental impact caused by today's activities.
Objective- Understanding prospective environmental assessments, including scenario analysis techniques, prospective emission models, dynamic MFA and LCA.
- Ability to properly plan and conduct prospective environmental assessment studies, for example on emerging technologies or on technical processes that cause long-term environmental impacts.
- Being aware of the uncertainties involved in prospective studies.
- Getting to know measures to prevent long-term emissions or impact in case studies
- Knowing the arguments in favor and against a temporally differentiated weighting of environmental impacts (discounting)
Content- Scenario analysis
- Dynamic material flow analysis
- Temporal differentiation in LCA
- Systems dynamics tools
- Assessment of future and present environmental impact
- Case studies
Lecture notesLecture slides and further documents will be made available on Moodle.
