Dr Eva Sevigné Itoiz is a Research Associate in the Centre for Environmental Policy at Imperial College London. Her research focuses on the environmental impacts of second generation biofuels by performing life cycle analysis, water footprint assessments, and by looking at the land use change impacts of biomass feedstocks for bioenergy. She works on the COMETHA project which is looking at the construction and operation of an integrated industrial facility for the production of second generation bioethanol and other co-products from lignocellulosic feedstock.
Dr Sevigné completed her PhD research at the University Autonomous of Barcelona (UAB) looking at the potential savings of resources and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of waste management in a global and circular economy. She participated in the development of a tool to calculate the impacts of municipal waste management (CO2ZW) and she developed a new model to include the international trade impacts on the GHG calculations of recycling. Her PhD was awarded with the "PhD Extraordinary award" of the University Autonomous of Barcelona.
After completing her PhD, Dr Sevigné worked at the Industrial Sustainability Department of the Catalan Research Centre (Eurecat). Her work focused on the sustainability evaluation of various European and Catalan projects in the frame of the bioeconomy and the circular economy. She joined Imperial College London in November 2015.
