Empa researchers join Quantis to open new branch in Switzerland
Date:4/5/2013

Empa's research activities in the area of LCA have gained a lot of interest and are internationally recognized, especially in the fields of energy, mobility, materials and buildings, as well as in databases management. To further improve industry cooperation and know-how dissemination, Empa and Quantis decided to start a new cooperation. While Empa will focus its activities on research on methodological challenges in LCA, Quantis will, in turn, take over the LCA service activities from Empa. "Empa is very pleased to hand over well-established LCA services to Quantis and looks forward to a fruitful cooperation with Quantis in the future", says Empa CEO, Gian-Luca Bona.

After Lausanne and Bellinzona, a new Quantis branch is opened in Switzerland, which will start its activities on 1st May 2013 at the Empa technology center glaTec in Dbendorf near Zrich. The new branch will be led by Rainer Zah, currently head of the LCA group at Empa's "Technology and Society" laboratory. The team consists of renowned experts in the field of LCA modeling and inventory data. With high complementarity concerning expertise, business sectors and geographic area, the new Quantis branch will focus on LCA services and applied research in the fields of energy, mobility, materials and buildings, as well as life cycle databases, and serve the Swiss German and German markets. "The collaboration with Empa will strengthen the position of Quantis as a recognized global leader that helps organizations move towards sustainability through the life cycle approach", says Yves Loerincik, CEO of Quantis International.
