Who we are
2.-0 LCA consultants was founded in year 2000 by senior consultant Bo P. Weidema. The company is a Limited Liability Partnership and is owned exclusively by former and current employees.
Bo P. Weidema
M.Sc. in horticulture in 1984 from the Royal Agricultural University of Copenhagen. In 1993 he obtained the Ph.D. degree from the Technical University of Denmark on a thesis on life cycle assessment. Since then he has been working as a consultant on life cycle assessment. Executive manager of the ecoinvent database from 2008 to 2012 and its Chief Scientist from 2012 to 2014. He is professor at Aalborg University and head of the Danish Standards delegation to the ISO TC 207 on environmental management as well as president of the International Life Cycle Academy (ILCA).
Jannick H. Schmidt
Environmental management engineer from 2002 from Aalborg University. Jannick H. Schmidt obtained his Ph.D. in 2007 with a study on life cycle assessment of rapeseed oil and palm oil. He holds an assistant professorship at Aalborg University. Main areas of expertise and experience are life cycle assessments of agricultural products and waste management systems, and development of LCA methodology regarding system delimitation, LCIA methods for biodiversity and Input-Output-based LCA. Extensive teaching and supervision experience.
Ivan Muñoz started working in life cycle assessment (LCA) in 1998. In his Ph.D. on environmental science (UAB, 2006) he focused his research on the suitability of LCA as a tool for Green Chemistry. He has been research fellow in several universities: ESCI-Universitat Pompeu Fabra (Barcelona, Spain), Centro de Investigaciones de la Energia Solar-University of Almeria (Spain) and Centre for Environmental Strategy-University of Surrey (UK). From 2009 to 2013 he worked in the UK for the consumer goods company Unilever. Ivan has worked on LCA for ecodesign, solid waste management, water and wastewater treatment, agriculture, and food production, applying not only LCA but other related tools like environmental risk assessment, life cycle costing and water footprinting. He is currently the subject editor for Green Chemistry in the International Journal of Life Cycle Assessment and a member of the Editorial Board of Ecoinvent.
Randi Dalgaard obtained her Ph.D. in 2008 with a study on Life Cycle Assessment of Danish Pork. She has worked with life cycle assessment of food products since 2001 and is an advanced LCI database developer. She was responsible for the modeling of the agricultural data for the LCAfood database and has modeled farming systems and the related emissions for several years.
Stefano Merciai got an university degree in Statistics in 2005 and a Ph.D. in Economic Statistics in the 2010 both at University of Rome “Sapienza”. His main area of interest relates to Input-Output tables’ applications. In the PhD thesis, he developed a methodology to analyze simultaneously physical and economic levels in order to address sustainability targets and scenarios. How to develop interdisciplinary tools is actually his main concern. Other areas of expertise regard economic analysis of agricultural market, development and implementation of computed general equilibrium models, drawing of questionnaires for surveys and interconnection of databases.
Marie de Saxcé
Marie de Saxcé obtained her Ph.D. in 2012: her thesis assessed the environmental impact of textile products. Her research interests and contributions are in LCA tools and LCA uncertainty measurements for eco-design and environmental labeling purposes. She set up a Life Cycle Inventory database for textiles (EIME-Tex). She also proposed a method to reduce LCIA uncertainties resulting from a lack of data for specific processes within multiple tasks in a worldwide manufacturing chain.
Marianne Thomsen obtained her Ph.D. in Environmental Science and Risk Management, Roskilde in 2001. She is the leader of the Strategic Research Area Resource Flows in a Circular Economy at Aarhus University, Department of Environmental Science. She specialises in industrial ecology, developing integrated sustainability assessments models of complex systems. Her focus is on sustainable resource management and technology systems using circular regenerative economy principles as well as on modelling of impacts on the natural environmental
and human health.
Michele De Rosa
Michele De Rosa is an environmental scientist with a focus on Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of biotic systems and environmental assessment of bio-based products. He obtained his MSc in environmental management and engineering (Aalborg University, Denmark, and Technical University of Hamburg, Germany) with a thesis on methodological improvements of Land-Use Change modelling in Life Cycle Assessment. He completed his PhD in Agroecology at Aarhus University where he focused on environmental issues related to the use of land and Life Cycle Inventory (LCI) database development. Michele is also the Executive Director of BONSAI, an organization dedicated to create and maintain a truly global Open Source Database for product footprinting, and an external lecturer at Aalborg University.
