From resources to a products : which environmental imacts for ecosystem?
TypeCommunications sans actes
For more than one hundred years the industrial revolution explodes all over the world through the different technologies. All these technologies were developed to help and increase the human conditions in providing new products. However, this development demands more and more resources (e.g. energy, water, raw materials) and generates many undesirable consequences with our over consumptions and the industrial systems used for the production. With the development of the research in human health and on the ecosystems, one has capable to assess our potential negative impacts. It exists many model in order to assess the environmental impacts (environmental impacts are on the ecosystem and on human health), one of the most famous methodology is the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA)   that is managed by the standard ISO 14040 and ISO 14044. However, even if this methodology is well-known, this one presents many limitations.

PU, Yubing; LARATTE, Bertrand; IONESCU, Rodica Elena (IOP Publishing, 2017)Wide use of engineered nanoparticles (ENPs) is likely to result in the eventually accumulation of ENPs in sediment. The benthic organisms living in sediments may suffer relatively high toxic effects of ENPs. This study has ...
