LCA screening of biofuels

July 7, 2013 by Inger Weidema

With a new report on “LCA screening of biofuels & iLUC, biomass manipulation and soil carbon” 2.-0 LCA consultants have contributed to the ongoing discussions in Denmark on the effects of biomass and other energy sources on climate change.

Our report (in English) is an appendix to a Danish report published by the green think tank CONCITO on the climate effects from bio-fuels: ‘Klimapåvirkningen fra biomasse og andre energikilder, Hovedrapport’. The main report concludes that virtually no energy is completely CO2-neutral and that some biomass sources can have greenhouse gas emissions that are equal to or greater than the emissions from the fossil fuels they replace. This conclusion has spurred a healthy debate about climate effects of bio-fuels in Denmark.
