Project

Life cycle assessment for the production supply and use of white wood pellets in Danish power plants

Publisher

Supervisor

Location

Greater Copenhagen area

The purpose of this work is to analyze through discussion of the energy, supply consumption and GHG emissions the sustainability of exporting wood pellets from USA and the Baltic Countries to Denmark with the consideration of environmental impacts not only associated with the production of wood pellets but also with the transportation and power generation. This streamlined life cycle analysis is necessary because the emissions of greenhouse gases and air pollutants come not only from pellets burning but also from the production and transportation processes.
The whole process starts from the biomass plantation and ends at waste releases in power plants
