With the E-TEST activities, we want to reach out to all parts of the EMR region around the possible future Einstein Telescope site. To inform you about activities and developments being made, to invite you to join activities with your expertise, etc…

Workshop n° 1:

Life Cycle Assessment
of Groundwater

Renewebility of freshwater can only be assessed at a local (regional) scale. Water consumption should not be confused with water production or withdrawals.

Globally, about 30% of the available and renewable freshwaters are ‘used’ while less than 15% are actually ‘consumed’.

Water shortage are due to the uneven spatial and temporal distributions of freshwater conjugated to inadequate local management.

Water issues are not only quantity problem but also quality problem. Groundwater reserves are 77 x surface-water reserves.

Rigorous LCA analysis and water footprint assessments remain challenging.
