Van Iperen: LCA of bio-stimulants

The challenge

Van Iperen developed a bio-stimulant to enhance the growth of specific crops. To understand the potential benefits of the stimulants and to put these in perspective of the production process, Hedgehog supported van Iperen with life cycle assessments.

The approach

Production and application of bio-stimulants are occurring within different system boundaries. And also, the performance of stimulants depend on many variables in a local environment. Hence, the LCA study was conducted in several field trials that needed to be aggregated into understandable results.

The result

Van Iperen used the insights of the study to increase the environmental benefits the products potentially have to offer and to stimulate their progress to market.

Hedgehog Company is a team of committed young professionals, with the drive to deliver results with real impact in the production process. Their flexibility and open-minded inset make a very nice collaboration experience
