Performing a Life Cycle Assessment for the ISIS-II Neutron And Muon Source

Performing a Life Cycle Assessment for the ISIS-II Neutron And Muon Source

  • Date 21 Feb 2024
  • Time 15:00 to 16:00
  • Category Seminar

Dr Hannah Wakeling (University of Oxford)

The ISIS-II Neutron and Muon Source is the proposed next generation of, and successor to, the ISIS Neutron and Muon Source based at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in the United Kingdom. Construction is estimated to begin sometime after 2030 and, as such, ISIS-II will have the rare yet exciting opportunity to embed environmental sustainability into the early stages of its design process. One instance of this is to use a Life Cycle Assessment to investigate the environmental impacts of different ISIS-II design options. This talk will introduce the first efforts of performing a Life Cycle Assessment at ISIS-II, present some preliminary results, and discuss the next strategic steps.
