TEA, LCA and RRI
NATIONAL EXPERTISE IN TEA, LCA AND RRI
The UK has extensive expertise in the area of techno-economic analysis (TEA), lifecycle analysis (LCA) and responsible research and inovation (RRI). These all play a vital role in the field of biomanufacturing. Future BRH and its partners have worked with the following people in these areas.
Techno-economic analysis (TEA) is a method used in industry to analyse the economic performance of a process, service or product. It uses modelling to estimate costs (capital and operating) and revenue based on both technical and financial inputs.

Life-cycle assessment (LCA, also known as life cycle analysis) is used to assess the environmental impacts associated with a commercial process, service or product at all stages of its life cycle.
