Mathias Janssen

Senior forskare at Chalmers University of Technology, Technology Management and Economics, Environmental Systems Analysis

Matty Janssen's research addresses the application of life cycle assessment (LCA) during technology development, specifically its application to assess technology that is in its early stages of development. LCA can thus inform technology developers to achieve an environmentally benign design of a technology. His focus is on the assessment of biorefinery products such as biofuels, bio-based chemicals and bio-based materials.Furthermore, he teaches in the Environmental Systems Analysis and Life Cycle Assessment courses.
