ERG Staff Present at Life Cycle Assessment Conference

Two ERG employees sit at a table at the ACLCA conference.

This past September, ERG staff presented on life cycle assessment (LCA) projects at the American Center for Life Cycle Assessment annual conference in Burlington, Vermont. Jacob Namovich, a sustainability and LCA analyst, presented on ERG’s in-progress work supporting EPA’s efforts to quantify embodied carbon in U.S. imports. Ben Young, a senior life cycle analyst, presented results from EPA’s forthcoming state-specific U.S. Environmentally Extended Input-Output (USEEIO) models. The ERG team also helped EPA run its Supply Chain Greenhouse Gas Factors pop-up help desk at the conference. Jacob Namovich and Sarah Cashman, ERG’s director of life cycle services, led a workshop on using Federal LCA Commons resources to submit data to the National Renewable Energy Laboratory’s U.S. Life Cycle Inventory (USLCI) database—for which ERG serves as the data curator—and the team held pop-up help desks throughout the conference on submitting data to the USLCI. Ben Young, Andrew Beck, Jorge Vendries, and Sarah Cashman of ERG’s LCA team also co-authored a conference poster on EPA’s Tools for Industrial Ecology Modeling (TIEM).
