Product Description
This presentation, given at the LCA XIV Conference, starts with the original NETL baseline, which is consistent with other published values for conventional fuel production in the U.S, and updates it to determine the life cycle GHG footprint of diesel, gasoline, and jet fuel over time to 2040. The results of this analysis encompass a cradle-to-grave inventory of GHG emissions by utilizing updated models to account for changes to crude extraction, transport and refining.
