Project Number: 1902-21000-008-11
Start Date: Oct 01, 2012
End Date: Aug 31, 2014
A process-based life cycle inventory analysis following ISO 14040-series standards will be constructed to profile the energy, net GHG (CO2, N2O, and CH4), and nitrate runoff emissions associated with switchgrass and energy sorghum production to evaluate contributions to global warming potential (GWI) and water and soil quality at the farm scale. Detailed life cycle inventory (LCI) models will be developed for the feedstocks using the DayCent model.
