Within several European, national and company-wide  projects complete LCA of hydrogen infrastructure and different supply chains have been conducted since 2001. This includes the EC’s funded Clean Urban Transport for Europe (CUTE), HyFLEET CUTE and the succession project Clean Hydrogen in European Cities (CHIC). TS has also has experience in the development of Product Category Rules (PCR) documents, most recently documented by coordinating the development of the guidance document for the conducting LCA of hydrogen production technologies in the JTI funded project FC-HyGuide. TS developed more than 10 PCR documents for various industries such as the construction material industry (polyurethane insulation boards (BING), insulation systems (IBU) etc.) and conducted more than 100 environmental product EPDs for various materials.

TS was instrumental in developing the EC lead initiative on the International Life Cycle Data base (ILCD). TS was the project leader of the ELCD I (Internet Site on Life-Cycle Assessment Tools and Services and Life-Cycle Inventory Data in support of European  Integrated  Product Policy; EC-DG Env) and ELCD II (Enhancement of the ELCD core database; EC-JRC).
