Ivan Muñoz started working in life cycle assessment (LCA) in 1998. In his PhD on environmental science (UAB, 2006) he focused his research on the suitability of LCA as a tool for Green Chemistry. He has been research fellow in several universities: ESCI-Universitat Pompeu Fabra (Barcelona, Spain), Centro de Investigaciones de la Energia Solar-University of Almeria (Spain) and Centre for Environmental Strategy-University of Surrey (UK). From 2009 to 2013 he worked in the UK for the consumer goods company Unilever. Ivan has worked on LCA for ecodesign, solid waste management, water and wastewater treatment, agriculture, and food production, applying not only LCA but other related tools like environmental risk assessment, life cycle costing and water footprinting. He is currently the subject editor for Green Chemistry in the International Journal of Life Cycle Assessment and a member of the Editorial Board of Ecoinvent.
