CO2 from biomass combustion Life Cycle Assesment.

The Life Cycle Assesment (LCA) is a methodology for objectively assesing the environmental impact of a product or service during the life stages of its existence.

The CO2 production LCA has been approached in three different scenarios:

  1. CO2 synthesis from natural gas.
  2. CO2 synthesis from industrial gas use.
  3. Green CO2 synthesis (LIFE CO2IntBio project).

The comparative analysis of the three scenarios leads to the conclusion that producing green CO2 saves the emission of 420 kg of CO2 equivalent per tonne of CO2 produced1.
