60 credits in Technology/Technique and/or Natural Science, including 30 credits in Technology/Technique

Objectives

The purpose of the course is to provide knowledge on quantification of natural resource use in a life cycle perspective and the environmental load caused by this use. The aim is also to give practice in formulating problems, critical reviewing and written and oral presentation.

After the course the student should be able to:
-describe different methods for analysis of environmental load and natural resource use caused by a process
- perform a limited energy and life cycle assessment for a smaller production system, for example a food product
- understand how different energy quality concepts can be used in energy- and life cycle assessments
- describe and apply methods for quantification of the effects of uncertain and varying input data in energy and life cycle assessments
- put in a method in a proper context and understand how it can be used in production or research.

Content

Energy analysis
Quality aspects of energy
Life cycle assessment
- definition of purpose, system limits and functional unit
- inventory (LCI)
- impact analysis (LCIA)
- result interpretation, sensitivity analysis
Data sources
Data quality
The course consists of lectures, exercises, a seminar and a project where the students perform an LCA, which includes collection of data, calculation of energy and environmental load and sensitivity analysis.

Compulsory parts of the course are the introduction and the oral presentation of the project work, a seminar and a guest lecture.

Formats and requirements for examination

Approved written and oral presentation of the project work, approved written examination and participation in the compulsory parts.
  • If the student fails a test, the examiner may give the student a supplementary assignment, provided this is possible and there is reason to do so.
  • If the student has been granted special educational support because of a disability, the examiner has the right to offer the student an adapted test, or provide an alternative assessment.
  • If changes are made to this course syllabus, or if the course is closed, SLU shall decide on transitional rules for examination of students admitted under this syllabus but who have not yet passed the course.
  • For the examination of a degree project (independent project), the examiner may also allow the student to add supplemental information after the deadline. For more information on this, please refer to the regulations for education at Bachelor's and Master's level.

Other information

  • The right to take part in teaching and/or supervision only applies to the course date to which the student has been admitted and registered on.
  • If there are special reasons, the student may take part in course components that require compulsory attendance at a later date. For more information on this, please refer to the regulations for education at Bachelor's and Master's level.
