The UFZ Bioenergy Department is working in the development of a Sustainability Index for ex-post assessment of regional bioeconomy industry networks and Multi-Criteria Decision Analysis (MCDA) for ex-ante evaluation of emerging bio-based value chains.
Both indicator-based sustainability assessment tools will be used for scoring of the techno-ecological and socio-economic performance of value chains of regional industry networks, which are operating under a common and cross-sectoral bioeconomy strategy.
In order to support the implementation planning of these industry networks with regard to the deployment of future-oriented solutions from R&D activities and technological upscaling, approaches of managerial decision modelling, material flows analysis and Life Cycle Sustainability Assessment (LCSA) are integrated into a procedure for Multi-Criteria-Decision Analysis of future process chain integration options.
