Obscure impacts demystified: Ionizing radiation
How knowledgeable are you about lesser-known impacts? Let’s discuss ionizing radiation, how to account for it in LCA and when it is a health risk.
As an analyst at PRé, Hendrik applies his systematic, problem-solving mind-set to evaluate environmental impacts on all scales by conducting LCAs and thereby allowing real sustainable development to happen. At the same time, he is conducting research to further deepen his specialization, by developing a methodology for businesses to assess their absolute sustainable performance.
Hendrik gained knowledge of various elements of environmental engineering during his studies, including life cycle assessment. Within the field of LCA, he specialized in absolute sustainability, the planetary boundaries and the application of ethical theories into assessment methodologies.
Hendrik holds a BSc in Chemical Engineering from the University of Twente, Netherlands and has a background in Chemical and Biochemical Engineering, MSc, from the Technical University of Denmark. He is also one of the EIT Climate-KIC Master School students, a European Union-funded initiative to further develop young sustainability talent in climate science and innovation.
