Project STYLE has three key objectives:
- To identify best practice in sustainability evaluation, across multiple sectors in the process industries and through value chains, via inventory and classification of established approaches.
- To test and deliver a practical ‘toolkit’ for sustainability evaluation of processes and products, spanning multiple sectors that is easily usable by non-practitioners of sustainability assessments.
- To determine gaps, through critical assessment and validation, and identify future research needs to improve the ‘toolkit’ and ensure broad applicability across sectors.
Project STYLE ultimately seeks to identify and deliver a practical ‘toolkit’ that can be used by future EU projects and industry to assess the value (in sustainability terms) of new technologies and process modifications that seek to make resource and energy efficiency improvements.
