Case Study: LCA of Algal Biodiesel

A comparative well-to-pump LCA was conducted to investigate the life-cycle GHG emissions and FER of algal biodiesel derived from algae cultivated in open raceway ponds. Comprehensive evaluation of production pathways allows for a greater understanding of the potential tradeoffs, environmental impacts, and technical practicality of different algae production options. Additionally, prior algal biofuel LCAs have shown mixed results regarding algae’s environmental and energetic performance, often as a consequence of differences in system boundaries and model assumptions. Holistic evaluation of multiple algal biofuel production pathways within the framework and assumptions of one study can address these issues.
