Product Description
In this presentation, given at the LCA XIV conference, the production and end-use combustion of diesel from conventional petroleum and alternative coal to liquid (CTL) or gas to liquid (GTL) technologies with carbon capture and storage (CCS) are compared using a number of different climate change metrics. In addition to traditional static LCIA GHG metrics such as global warming potential (GWP) and global temperature potential (GTP), we model the emissions and their impact over time using technology warming potential (TWP) and temperature results.
