CALL for Participants for TensiNet Working Group on Life Cycle Assessment


Following an initiative of Prof. Jan Cremers from Hightex, a new working group has been founded which will focus on the subject of Life Cycle Assessment (LCA). The aim of this group is to review the current status on materials and typical membrane structures with regard to LCA issues. As building certification becomes more and more standard this subject will also touch our part of the building sector. The status reached so far is very heterogeneous and inconsistent for the typical materials we use. On the level of structure types, there is hardly any information available so far. The LCA Working Group will identify and describe steps that could be taken within the TensiNet association to achieve a coherent data base to work with. It should also be as open and transparent as possible to gain a maximum of credibility. The idea is to present a kind of road map how to proceed at the next meeting.

During the setup in Barcelona (November 2011) and afterwards, there was great interest to cooperate in this working group from different sides. But of course we invite still others to join in.
