LCA compares three production methods of butanol


An LCA recently published in the journal Fuel compares three production methods of butanol.

  1. Oxo synthesis

  2. ABE fermentation using corn

  3. ABE fermentation using wheat

The ABE fermentation using corn as substrate presents the highest environmental impact and the ABE fermentation using wheat straw is the one that presents the lowest environmental impact, when the allocation method was based on mass.
