The International Life Cycle Academy is run on a daily basis by our dedicated Barcelona-based staff


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.


Marie de Saxcé obtained her PhD in 2012: her thesis assessed the environmental impact of textile products. Her research interests and contributions are in the areas of LCA tools and LCA uncertainty measurements for eco-design and environmental labeling purposes. She set up a Life Cycle Inventory database for textiles (EIME-Tex). She also proposed a method to reduce LCIA uncertainties resulting from a lack of data for specific processes within multiple tasks in a worldwide manufacturing chain.
