On Wednesday, 10 May 2023, at the National Institute of Chemistry in Ljubljana, as part of the Interreg Europe LCA4Regions project, we organized a mini conference entitled "Use of LCA methodologies in the circular economy and green public procurement". The event, which was attended by over 40 participants from industrial companies, academic and research institutions and public sector, was co-organized by the National Institute of Chemistry and the Chamber of Commerce of Štajerska Region - SRIP Circular Economy, in accordance with the action plan of the Slovenian partner in the project. The program of the event (in Slovenian language) is available at the following link:


The mini conference was intended for all those interested in the use of LCA methodologies in the circular economy and learning how LCA can help in making decisions about the use of new products compared to competing products, and in identifying key stages where changes could reduce environmental impacts. We also focused on the integration of LCA methodologies in green public procurement and raising public authorities' awareness of the importance of using these methodologies.
