  • The Application of Life-Cycle Analysis to Waste Management

    Carbon Dioxide – fossil, biomass and storage CO 2 is removed from the atmosphere to grow forest products (paper, wood) and agricultural products. When these products decay, the CO 2 is returned to the atmosphere. If these products do not decay, then the carbon is considered to have been sequestered.

  • RELCA: a REgional Life Cycle inventory for Assessing ...

    "RELCA", is a regional life cycle inventory for assessing the regional and spatial variation in the environmental performance of bioenergy production within a region. Five modelling steps are combined to form the RELCA approach in order to determine: (1) regional crop allocation, (2) regional biomass management, (3) representative bioenergy ...

  • Biomass Energy Outlook: Regional Biomass Inventory ...

    One tool to assist in that assessment is a biomass inventory. Last year, San Benito County, California engaged my company, Biomass Rules, LLC, to conduct a community biomass inventory for the county. A biomass inventory has four components: Estimate of annual energy use; Assessment of available biomass materials; Review of available biomass ...

  • Life Cycle Assessment of Burning Different Solid Biomass ...

    biomass substrates is performed. For that purpose the life cycle inventory (LCI) data are collected and modelled according to the present guidelines of ecoinvent data v2.2. The final product is useful heat provided by the combustion process. A survey of the potential biomass substrates for direct combustion mentioned in literature
