Specification of methodology, data collection and research plan for LCA & ES

This deliverable provides the framework to the data collection for life cycle assessments (LCA) and ecosystem services (ES).

This deliverable guides the SeaMark consortium through the process of data collection for life cycle assessments (LCA) and ecosystem services (ES), and thus preventing data losses, delays and facilitating the collection process itself. For the final data collection further decision with the consortium need to be made, thus this framework provides the necessary information to discuss with the partners on what data collection is feasible. For LCA it includes a list of potential parameters to monitor, an overview of how this data can be collected and the decision process for specific partners to decide and plan the final data collection. The final data collection protocol will be tailored to the three products chosen for LCA.

For the ecosystem services (ES) this report provides an overview of categorized ecosystem services, an overview of methodologies used to quantify and valuate ES and the decision process for specific partners to decide and plan the final data collection. The data collection should commence before the first growing season, therefore the decision for the ES to analyse will be made in the course of January/February of 2023. The practical protocols for the selected ES will then be made.
