In this workshop, the participants will be introduced to the CLiCC (Chemical Life Cycle Collaborative) tool that allows rapid LCA-based screening and risk analysis. We will introduce the background and methodology used for analyzing life cycle impacts and risks of chemicals. The chemical life cycle impact estimator that uses machine learning techniques and proxy chemical identifier based on chemical structures will be presented. Parametric life cycle inventory (LCI) model will also be presented, which can be used to develop an LCI based on user-defined parameters.

The basics of risk analysis will be also discussed. Then several case studies will be presented. Participants will be given access to the web-based tool and will conduct hands-on exercises. The workshop will conclude with a discussion on potential use cases and future improvements.
