Sustainability assessment of gasification processes for synthetic liquid fuel production
economic, environmental, and policy issues
De LuciaC. University of Foggia, Foggia, Italy
This chapter illustrates the main potentials and limitations of sustainability assessment (e.g., life cycle assessment and economic assessment) for biofuels production. The analysis hinges on techno-economic, energy, and environmental effects of synthetic liquid fuels production, and compares these with other biogas fuels and alternative feedstock. Finally, the chapter addresses the role of sustainability assessment in supporting international policies for biofuels.
