We have provided expert consulting for approval procedures of applicants, public authorities and private citizens in almost 100 Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA), thus demonstrating our solid professional skills in pollutant distribution modelling and in the assessment of impacts on different environmental safeguard subjects. ifeu carried out the first LCA on beverage packaging, commissioned by the German Federal Environment Agency (UBA) in 1995, and has since been a driving force in LCA method development in Germany and on ISO panels. With over 200 LCA studies for a wide range of products, primarily for the packaging industry, we have established an extensive and detailed database on industrial processes (energy production, production processes, recycling systems). Our considerable expertise allows us to provide our clients with the most competent consulting for their diverse individual queries. Most of our LCAs are subject to review and validation by renowned outside reviewers. For our industrial association clients (e.g. PlasticsEurope), we compile eco-profiles for individual products (e.g. PE granules), thus gaining valuable insight into production process data of businesses both within and outside the EU. Our knowledge on individual local conditions has been shaped by a wide range of research studies and developmental aid projects world-wide (e.g. in cooperation with GIZ, BMZ, EU Aid, FAO), which allowed us to gain valuable experience with the implementation of our concepts and solutions in an international context.
