Life Cycle Assessments for the Australian Poultry Industry

10 October 2012, at 7:51am

AUSTRALIA - With an increasingly discerning public and a demanding regulatory requirement, it is important that the poultry industry clearly understand its environmental footprint. Life cycle assessment shows the environmental impacts and resource usage by an industry throughout its supply chain.

At Ideas Exchange 2012, Stephen Wiedemann from FSA Consulting, a partner of the Poultry CRC, presented their work on Life Cycle Assessment of both the chicken meat and egg sectors of the Australian poultry industry.

Mr Wiedemann is the lead author on two recent reports commissioned by the Rural Industries R&D Corporation (RIRDC) and the Australian Egg Corporation Limited (AECL) in collaboration with the Poultry CRC to carry out comprehensive life cycle assessments for both chicken meat and egg production.
