CRESTA, Chemical Engineering, University of Sydney
Prof Jim Petrie, Dr Mary Stewart, (Australia)
Research: The Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of Sydney has a research programme in several key areas of Sustainability, all underpinned by the philosophy of Life Cycle Thinking, embodied in the use (and further development) of Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) to support Decision Making. Our guiding premise is that Decision Making is a value-laden exercise, and requires a support framework within which all stakeholder views can be elicited and brought into the decision making exercise. Decision Making requires the articulation of multiple objectives, of which "minimisation of environmental impact" is but one. Whilst LCA, as it is currently conceived, goes some way to informing environmental objectives, it is not necessarily the best tool for all decision making contexts. Equally, LCA as a tool has no value in formulating other objectives whose optimisation is sought in any decision making exercise - eg. techno-economic, socio-political. That said, the guiding principles of Life Cycle Thinking do have value here. As an ideal, we should strive to find a common approach to the formulation of ALL objectives, and to develop a "tools selection" methodology which suits any particular decision context. Our own research programme is structured to deliver on both these needs. Our Life Cycle Thinking-based Decision Making research is supported by an analysis of different decision contexts, including - Project selection and other strategic decisions; - Technology selection, flowsheet development, detailed process design and evaluation; and - Process optimisation
