Purpose Previous Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) studies of biomass briquetting have shown wide variations in the LCA outcomes as a result of variations in LCA methodological parameters and briquetting technological parameters. An LCA model of biomass briquetting was therefore developed to enable transparent comparison of life cycle environmental impac...
Article
Milk packaging has been analysed multiple times in pursuit of finding the most appropriate vessel from an environmental point of view. Research has concentrated on commercially available containers of 0.5 – 2.5 litres, usually made from High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE), Polyethylene Terephtalate (PET), paper-based cartons, or glass, with some studi...
Article
Life cycle assessment (LCA) and Environmental risk assessment (ERA) are highly complementary; several studies have attempted to bridge the two approaches by means of integration for a more comprehensive assessment of environmental impacts. This paper reviews existing studies on LCA and ERA integration to establish an understanding of the benefits a...
Article
Several recent life cycle assessments (LCA) of biomass densification have been carried out. This paper reviews data from 19 sources with 48 case scenarios to assess the current status of LCA of biomass densification. It describes the specific units in a reference “gate-to-gate” LCA in relation to the existing studies, and summarises key differences...
Article
Binders can be employed to improve the particle adhesion, compressive strength, abrasion resistance and energy content of densified biomass, such as briquettes. They may also reduce the energy cost of producing such briquettes, by reducing the compaction pressure, conditioning temperature and the wear on production equipment. This study explored an...
Article
Biomass densification processes increase fuel energy density for more efficient transport. This study presents new data to show that blending different types of biomass improves the properties of densified biomass briquettes. The specific objectives were to investigate the effects of sample batch (biomass source), material ratio (rice husks to corn...
