LCA Crop Database
The LCA crop database project aimed at developing a methodology for calculating the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, as well as fertiliser leaching/soil residues related to the cultivation of crops.
Novozymes – Denmark
We developed the data input and output sheets, and calculated the emissions, leaches, and leftovers using a model described by the intergovernmental panel on climate change (IPCC). Project completed March 2023.
GHG methodology project for crop cultivation
This project developed a methodology and data for calculating the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, nitrogen and phosphate leached to water, and phosphate leftover in the soil, related to the cultivation of crops. The GHG emissions include dinitrogen monoxide, ammonia, nitrogen oxides, and carbon dioxide. These emissions, leaches, and leftovers were calculated using a model described by the intergovernmental panel on climate change (IPCC). The calculations are summarised in a report (Schmidt J and Sørensen J I (2022). LCA Crop Database Methodology Report), where the inputs and the outputs of the model are also outlined.
