The thesis was entitled: "Life cycle assessment of air pollution control technologies and methodological improvements" and it was supervised by Prof. Maite Moreira and Prof. Gumersindo Feijoo (Biogroup). The commission of this Thesis was formed by Prof. Francisco Omil (USC), Dr. Raquel Lebrero (Universidade de Valladolid) and Dr. João Malça (Instituto Politécnico de Coimbra).

In this work, Carolina Alfonsín performed the environmental assessment of systems to control air quality and off-gases treatment technologies using the Life Cycle Assessment methodology. Main results provide useful guidelines for the selection of the proper technology focusing on the minimisation of the overall environmental impacts. Moreover the doctoral thesis tackled methodological improvements by including emerging pollutants such as Pharmaceuticals and Personal Care Products (PPCPs) in the  most updated characterisation models.
