Make environmental impact!
LCA of biobased value chains
Gain insights into a product or service’s environmental impact from creation to end-of-life consciousness with BioGrowth Development’s Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) services.
Insight into plant growth potential and forecasting
In a world often limited by unreliable input information, BioGrowth Development excels. Companies can significantly reduce their environmental impact by collecting and analysing external data that leverages company data. Complying with ISO 14044 standards, our approach follows a structured five-step process:
1. Define objectives and scope
2. Analyze material flows
3. Evaluate environmental impacts
4. Interpret results according to objectives
5. Study GHG emissions, resource depletion, and more
This method examines the comprehensive environmental impact of a product throughout its entire life cycle—from the extraction of essential raw materials to production, transportation, utilization, and waste management. Beyond just a calculation method, LCA serves as a foundation for sustainable development policies. The data generated becomes a valuable asset for future spin-out projects, like carbon offset by embedding carbon in biobased constructions, certification of sustainable sourcing and the manufacturing of biobased products. We delve into the expected lifespan of products, ensuring secure, long-term net carbon storage within materials.
By utilizing standardized databases (ISO 14040 to 14044) and customized GIS-coupled land use data, we deliver accurate insights into biobased value chains across sectors. Our digital, automated tools—powered by Python—facilitate a customized framework for data collection, processing and insightful metric-driven reporting.
Our profound knowledge enables us to find, structure and transform data into impactful reports with clear graphs and features. Leveraging strong automated systems, we expedite report creation, saving time and eliminating human errors. Our reports, aligned with EU regulations, empower companies to make informed choices, eliminating the risk of greenwashing. For consumers, the clarity to choose sustainable products is at their fingertips.
Embark on the path of informed sustainability with BioGrowth Development—where expertise meets innovation, shaping a greener future for products and services.
Our approach ensures a thorough understanding of the environmental impact landscape. With an integrated view of the whole supply chain, BioGrowth also stands as your ally in navigating the complexities of sustainability certification, including EPD and VCS.

On September 29th, the seminar “Las cubiertas vegetales en el olivar como instrumento de la nueva PAC” (“Vegetable roofs in olive groves as an instrument of the new CAP”) – organized by the Agrupación de Sanidad Vegetal “Centro de España”, the Wageningen University and the governments of Holland and Castilla La Mancha – was held at the…
The Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management, DG Mobility, is investigating a possible role in the National Forest Strategy (LNV). One of the components of this exploration is more insight into the carbon storage that this possible contribution can make, both in the acreage and when used in products that remove the carbon from the…
Discussions about the sustainability of woody biomass, which have been taking place in the Netherlands for some time now, are also increasingly making headlines elsewhere in Europe. Certainly when it comes to generating energy. With the increasing attention to green chemistry, the chemical sectors will also be affected sooner or later. This makes reliable certification…
