Modelling ecotoxicity impacts in vineyard production : Addressing spatial differentiation for copper fungicides / Peña Valbuena, Nancy Angela Lucia (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Antón Vallejo, Ma. Asunción (Institut de Recerca i Tecnologia Agroalimentàries (IRTA)) ; Kamilaris, Andreas (Institut de Recerca i Tecnologia Agroalimentàries (IRTA)) ; Fantke, Peter (Technical University of Denmark)
Application of plant protection products (PPP) is a fundamental practice for viticulture. Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) has proved to be a useful tool to assess the environmental performance of agricultural production, where including toxicity-related impacts for PPP use is still associated with methodological limitations, especially for inorganic (i. [...]

Sustainability assessment of home-made solar cookers for use in developed countries / Mendoza, Joan Manuel F. (The University of Manchester. School of Chemical Engineering and Analytical Science) ; Gallego-Schmid, Alejandro (The University of Manchester. School of Chemical Engineering and Analytical Science) ; Schmidt Rivera, Ximena C. (The University of Manchester. School of Chemical Engineering and Analytical Science) ; Rieradevall, Joan (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Azapagic, Adisa (The University of Manchester. School of Chemical Engineering and Analytical Science)
The sustainability benefits of using solar cookers in developing countries have been analysed widely in the literature. However, the sustainability potential of solar cookers in developed economies has not been explored yet, which is the topic of this paper. [...]

35 p, 1.4 MB Addressing the life cycle of sewers in contrasting cities through an eco-Efficiency approach / Petit Boix, Anna (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Arnal, Carla (Cetaqua. Centro Tecnólogico del Agua (Barcelona)) ; Marín, Desirée (Cetaqua. Centro Tecnólogico del Agua (Barcelona)) ; Josa, Alejandro (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya.

Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Rieradevall, Joan (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals)
Evaluating the sustainability of the urban water cycle is not straightforward, although a variety of methods have been proposed. Given the lack of integrated data about sewers, we applied the eco-efficiency approach to two case studies located in Spain with contrasting climate, population, and urban and sewer configurations.

16 p, 766.6 KB Are Cradle to Cradle certified products environmentally preferable? Analysis from an LCA approach / Llorach-Massana, Pere (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Farreny Gaya, Ramon (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Oliver i Solà, Jordi (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Enginyeria Química, Biològica i Ambiental)
The Cradle to Cradle (C2C) certification has gained popularity amongst companies as a way to distinguish more environmentally friendly products. This article analyzes the C2C certification by determining how successful this eco-labeling scheme is in distinguishing environmentally preferable products in order to probe if the certification informs correctly to the consumer about the environmental performance of products.
