Michael Hauschild bags 2018 Edana LCA award
Michael Hauschild has bagged the 2018 Edana LCA (Life Cycle Assessment) Life Time Achievement award. The award was presented at the 28th annual conference of SETAC, the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry, which is being held from May 13 to 17, 2018, in Rome, Italy. Edana is a global association serving the nonwovens and related industries.
The award was granted in recognition of Michael’s 25-year body of work in the field of LCA at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU). Michael made lasting contributions in the areas of ecotoxicity in LCA, the assessment of the social sustainability dimension in a life cycle perspective and, more recently, the introduction of an absolute sustainability perspective into LCA.
Gil Stevens, Edana’s external relations and sustainability director, presented the award to Alexis Laurent from DTU Denmark, on behalf of Hauschild.
Gil Stevens said, “SETAC promotes fundamental understanding and knowledge of the science and technologies contributing to the analysis and solution of environmental challenges. Edana are greatly honoured in being allowed to recognise such professional commitment to research and development in this field.” (GK)
