Abstract

The increase usage of biofuels in transportation sector is the driving factor for the development of advanced processes to produce biofuels to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and fossil energy use in the transportation sector. The energy crops for these transportation biofuels are cultivated in agriculture applying conventional agricultural production methods, which are associated with environmental effects, e.g. N2O-emisisons, fossil energy use. So the agricultural cultivation of energy crops significantly determines the overall environmental effects of transportation biofuels. The purpose of this work is to identify the key impacts of energy crop cultivation on the Life Cycle Analyses (LCA) of transportation biofuels. The approach is based on a review of the applied methodologies (e.g. allocation, system boundary) and the specific data used to identify the key aspects on the energy crop cultivation for the environmental performance of biofuels.
