Social LCA in the European Union, a tool to measure the social impacts of technology implementation (27 November 2020)
Since the publication of the Social Lifecycle Assessment (LCA) Guidelines in 2009, the methodology has been steadily improved and refined. With a new update of the Guidelines around the corner (publication expected 2021), NEMO thought the time ripe to discuss current practices and challenges in social LCA. More than 30 participants from academia, research, business and government participated in the ...Read More »
Within EU NEMO a bioheapleaching pilot started its operations at the Sotkamo mine in Finland. Its aim is to improve the secondary bioheapleaching process at the mine, boosting the recovery of metals and the removal of sulphides.Read More »
