The research team from Università degli Studi di Napoli Parthenope involved in this proposal has scientific expertise in: Emergy, exergy and energy analyses; Ecological footprint and material flow accounting; Environmental impact assessment, LCA and quality assessment and certification; Urban and industrial waste management and conversion;
Circular Economy and Technologies. In particular, the present research activity of the team focuses on:
- Innovative municipal waste and wastewater management options;
- Integrated production patterns to reduce the environmental impact of industrial production (circular economy, “zero-waste production systems”).
- Application of Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) and Quality Assessment and Certification to assess the energy efficiency, feasibility, and sustainability of production processes across scales.
