All biomass is local: Environmental impacts of ethanol derived from corn grain

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

A life cycle assessment study on the ethanol production system in which ethanol is derived from corn grain via wet milling was presented. The effects of farming location on corn production environmental performance were studied. Performance varied significantly with location. Four wet milling plants in different were examined. Ethanol was used as a liquid fuel in a midsize passenger vehicle in the form of E10 (a mixture of 10 vol % ethanol and 90 vol % gasoline). The system boundary included biomass production, transportation of biomass to a wet milling, wet milling process, transportation of ethanol to users, and ethanol fueled vehicle operation. The potential impact categories considered were nonrenewable energy consumption, natural resource use (e.g., coal, crude oil, and natural gas), climate change, photochemical smog, acidification, and eutrophication. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the AIChE Annual Meeting and Fall Showcase (Cincinnati, OH 10/30/2005-11/4/2005).
