Research & Development

Focus your effort early on in product development and you develop more environmental friendly from the start, throughout the entire product lifecycle.

Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) software plays a pivotal role in enabling R&D departments to provide quantitative insights into the environmental impacts of various design choices.

Ecochain for R&D departments

Assess new materials

Assess the environmental impact of different products throughout their life cycle. Incorporating LCA in your R&D process enables your company to move towards a more sustainable product portfolio and reduce your environmental footprint. Identify high-impact materials and products and prioritize your research and development efforts over those that really matter for sustainability.

Analyze production processes

Analyze the environmental impacts of different components and manufacturing processes related to your product. Review which steps in your production process have a high impact. Assess production alternatives including the final waste treatment. Identify which steps actually make a difference, for example by switching from fossil based energy to renewable energy sources.
