Evert A. Bouman PhD, Senior Scientist, Department of Environmental Impacts and Sustainability, NILU – Norwegian Institute for Air Research, P.O. Box 100, NO-2027 Kjeller, Norway
Evert Bouman works on developing methods within the field of Industrial Ecology. His expertise lies in the development of life-cycle based scenario models, drawing on methods such as Life Cycle Assessment, Input-Output Analysis and Material Flow Analysis. These models provide insight in environmental trade-offs, co-benefits and problem shifting related to climate change mitigation policies and policies aimed at circular and sustainable transitions. He holds Master degrees in Industrial Ecology (2011) and Chemical Engineering (2012) and a PhD in Industrial Ecology (2015). At NILU, Bouman has been task leader for various tasks in the European Topic Centres on Air Pollution, Noise, Transport and Industrial Pollution (ETC/ATNI) and Climate Change Mitigation and Energy (ETC/CME) for the European Environment Agency, working among others on methodologies for assessing the benefits and trade-offs of renewable energy sources in the European energy system, decomposition analysis of emissions trends, and emissions outsourcing in global trade. In addition, he is Work Package leader for risk-benefit assessment of engineered nanomaterials in the Horizon 2020 funded European research project RiskGONE, work package leader on the life cycle impacts of plastic recycling scenarios in the nationally funded project Plastcycle, and NILUs principal investigator in the national funded Centre for Science-Based Innovation (SFI) earthresQue. Finally, Bouman leads NILUs in-house model development for sustainability assessment in the project DECIAS.
