"Through my LCA and sustainability work, I have become familiar with the nuances of product and service systems ranging from fuels and mineral extraction, chemical manufacturing and materials fabrication, bio-based materials and food cultivation and processing, community infrastructure and building materials and designs, electronics and renewable energy technologies, to transportation and waste management systems….really, anything that humans make and use—we call it ‘the technosphere’ and sustainability analysts such as myself are working to identify strategies for synergism between this ‘sphere’ and the others which sustain us on our planet: the geosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere, and biosphere."
Rebe Feraldi, LCACP has 18 years of experience in environmental chemistry and engineering. She specializes in industrial ecology assessment methodologies: Life Cycle Inventory (LCI), Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), LCA Reviews, Material Flow Analysis (MFA), and green supply chain management. She also has experience in pollution prevention & remediation, waste management, and water resources management. Rebe is a 2009 M.E.S.M graduate of the Bren School of Environmental Science & Management. She earned her Bachelor’s in Environmental Chemistry at the Colorado School of Mines. Rebe is a LCA Certified Professional (LCACP), a Certified LCA Reviewer (CLAR), and has over six years of experience as an LCACP and as an LCA & Sustainability Consultant. She has completed numerous industrial ecology projects and peer reviews for clients from a wide range of government agencies, private companies, and industry associations on local, regional, national, and international scales.
Prior to being an LCACP, Rebe performed LCA research, directed a water quality laboratory, served as an environmental consultant in the Peace Corps, and participated in and numerous environmental and chemistry lab and field studies—working to balance natural resource conservation, economic development and technological innovation. Rebe’s chemistry and engineering background, professional experience, and immersion in the sustainability field provide her with a distinctive, cross-disciplinary framework and set of skills from which to draw. She is continually exploring how to improve the use of LCA and other sustainability metrics to bring more substantive insight to activities and innovations that can support our economy and critical ecosystem services infrastructure.
