ABOUT THE PROSCALE METHOD AND THE CONFERENCE

Companies across the industrial value chain are increasingly required by a variety of stakeholders to provide toxicological information on the chemicals used in their product systems, for example in the framework of sustainability ratings in combination with Life Cycle Assessment (LCA).

Although regulatory requirements are in place to ensure a safe use of chemicals in their application, the ambition to reduce the environmental impacts of products along their life cycle is often combined with an ambition to identify and reduce hazards and exposures.

This calls for a performance based indicator that can consolidate hazard and direct exposure potentials from chemicals along their life cycle, that can be applied and communicated within LCAs, Environmental Product Declarations ("EPDs”) and Product Environmental Footprints ("PEFs”) by (i) using life cycle thinking, (ii) using a risk-based approach for product assessments, (iii) aggregation from single product to a complete building or product solution and (iv) using existing, systematic data.

Starting from these premises, and following a preliminary scoping exercise commissioned by BASF in 2015, 7 companies and organisations set up the ProScale Consortium in 2016, with the purpose of developing a method for a hazard and exposure based scoring system for comparing chemical risks associated with products in a life cycle perspective.

The 5 October Conference will present the final results of the ProScale method development work.

It will be an opportunity for LCA practitioners, product stewards, toxicological experts, regulatory affairs specialists and other interested stakeholders to:

  • learn about the ProScale method and its working, notably via the presentation of case studies
  • provide input on the implementation and further development of the method
  • engage in the implementation and application of ProScale

A Guidance Document detailing the ProScale method and its rationale will be made available in early September to the Conference participants, together with the detailed Conference programme.

The ProScale consortium members are BASF, Covestro, Deutsche Bauchemie, DSM, IVL, Kingspan, Solvay.  Project management: UetlibergPartners
