|Title:||Comparative Life Cycle Assessment study on environmental impact of oil production from micro-algae and terrestrial oilseed crops||Authors:||Jez, Sabina
|Issue Date:||2017||Project:||None||Journal:||BIORESOURCE TECHNOLOGY||Abstract:||
In this study the LCA methodology is applied in order to satisfy two goals: i) to evaluate the hot spots in site-specific production chain of biodiesel from terrestrial and micro-algae feedstock; ii) to compare quantitatively, utilizing primary data, the impacts of the first generation in respect to the third generation bio-fuels. Results show that micro-algae are neither competitive yet with traditional oil crops nor with fossil fuel. The use of renewable technologies as photovoltaics and biogas self production might increase the competitiveness of micro-algae oil. Further investigations are however necessary to optimize their production chain and to increase the added value of co-products
