The Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) will run a half-day course on the introduction to Life Cycle Inventory and Carbon Footprinting.

The training course, to be held in Melbourne on Thursday, May 27, will be presented by Prof Gordon Robertson, a food packaging consultant, expert witness, author and trainer.

The half-day training course will provide a comprehensive introduction to Life Cycle Inventory (LCI) – an inventory that identifies and quantifies energy and resource use and environmental discharges through the entire product life cycle. 

Resource inputs, energy requirements, and releases to the air, water, and land for each step in the manufacture of a product or process are quantified, from the extraction of the raw materials from the earth to ultimate disposal of the wastes.

The course is for people with a direct interest and involvement in packaging within all packaging-associated industries (both suppliers and users).

For a booking form phone AIP National Office: 07 3278 4490, email info@aipack.com.au or log on to the events page on www.aipack.com.au to book online.
