This study performs the environmental product declarations for three Belgian mineral products, two granite and one sandstone paving. Both main goals of this work were to obtain Belgian environmental product declarations to strengthen existing databases and to get similar information for their Asian counterparts. Indeed, competition with China for bluestone products and with India for sandstone pavement is very important due to very competitive prices despite their foreign origin and possibly higher induced environmental impacts. Environmental product declarations of Belgian bluestone and sandstone products were conducted in accordance with the ISO standards and following the stand-ard NF P 01-010. CML 2001 method was used to obtain environmental impacts for ten categories as climate change, acidification, abiotic resources depletion, etc. Boundaries of the Belgian systems are the same and the life cycle assessment comprises all steps from the extraction of minerals to the implementation on site. Use and end of life steps were neglected due to the low required maintenance and the inert nature of the paving. For Asian products, the analysis is reduced to the transportation of the functional unit, mainly due to the lack of reliable data. This work highlights the negative effect of long distance transportation of heavy and non-energetic products. Indeed, the environmental impacts of the sole transport of Asian products are at least as important as those obtained for the whole life cycle of Belgian products, whatever the category taken into account (climate change, acidification, air pollution, etc.). CML 2001 methodology was successfully applied to these five studies about three Belgian products and two abroad transportation steps. Comparison of the 5 corresponding environmental product declarations permits to highlight the importance of the transport on environment and to promote, supposing equal performance, local prod-ucts in a more environmental-friendly point of view.

This review presents a summary of published papers about the improvement of sugar beet yield and its transformation into bioethanol. After situating the current political and economic context of the sugar beet crop, influence of factors during the crop growth is studied. Main factor influencing the crop yield and, consequently the bioethanol yield is the weather variability. Others parameters as climate change, fertilizer and crop management are evocated and explained in further paragraphs. Irrigation takes also place in semi-arid countries and plays a role in the different results. After the overview of the crop growth conditions, the sugar beet transformation into bioethanol has been pointed out with the most energetic steps, the different available raw materials from sugar beet and the optimal parameters to get the highest possible yield in terms of bioethanol. To provide economics on bioenergy production, the goal is to obtain the highest yield available in terms of sugar beet, sugar and then bioethanol. Some savings can be made with energy reduction during the fermentation or distillation steps. A sole guideline to reach this goal is not available because of the variability of the parameters depending on the location and on the weather forecasts. [less ▲]

This study is based on WEEE life cycle assessment and more particularly on treatment and valorization of fridges and freezers. Two scenarios were envisaged: situation before fridge collect and the Belgian current situation where all national fridges are treated in Liège. Results of this study prove the importance of collecting and valorizing fridges especially for old fridges containing refrigerant banned by the Montreal Protocol. Recovery and incineration of the pollutants permit to reduce climate change and ozone depletion impacts. [less ▲]
