Social LCA of brine effluent in Port of Rotterdam petrochemical cluster

Social LCA of brine effluent in Port of Rotterdam petrochemical clusterAccording to United Nations, water is the primary medium through which we will feel the effects of climate change. Water availability is becoming less predictable in many places, and increased incidences of flooding threaten to destroy water points and sanitation facilities and contaminate water sources. In some regions, droughts are exacerbating water scarcity and thereby negatively impacting people’s health and productivity. Ensuring that everyone has access to sustainable water and sanitation services is a critical climate change mitigation strategy for the years ahead. In this MSc graduation project the aim is to investigate the social performances of the brine conversion. The social impacts under focus are the health risks, acceptability, stakeholder involvement, legislation and permitting procedures. In addition, The database information will be extended combined with empirical inputs from the consortium, especially in terms of involvement of local stakeholders, investment patterns etc.
