Current activities

Dr Pietro Goglio has a strong track record in publications (i-10=6, h-factor=7) in several peer reviewed journals related to bioenergy such as Journal of Cleaner Production, Science of the Total Environment, Biomass and Bioenergy. More recently, Dr Pietro Goglio has been participating to the training course for the Post-Graduate Certificate in Academic Practice and has been appointed Guest Editor for a Special Volume in Bioeconomy of the Journal of Cleaner Production. He is focusing in environmental assessment of production chains and he has a strong agricultural background. He is currently focusing his research in developing approaches to combine science with LCA methodologies for agricultural, energy, waste systems which better reflect the characteristics of the systems.
