Description: Paul Adler (USDA-ARS) "Life Cycle Assessment: A Tool to Informed Energy Policy"
Abstract: Estimating the carbon intensity of biofuel production pathways is important in order to meet greenhouse gas targets set by government policy. Life cycle assessment methods have been used to quantify the greenhouse gas emissions associated with different crop production systems and feedstock conversion technologies. Examples of using life cycle methods to evaluate mitigation strategies, coproduct use, and abatement costs will be presented.
