Energy balance and greenhouse gas emission of dryland Camelina as influenced by tillage and nitrogen – R. Keshavarz-Afshar, Y.A. Mohammed, and C. Chen. Energy 2015 Summary: In order to assess net energy gain and to identify energy saving and environmental friendly production operations, a two year study was conducted at central Montana. We investigated the effects of tillage method (CT …

Life cycle assessment: By-products in Biofuels Production Battle: Rapeseed vs Camelina sativa L. – S.M. Petre, S. Jurcoane, P. Dobre, R. Petcu, D. Dimitriu – AgroLife Scientific Journal 2013

David Roberts Camelina Production Sustainability 0 Comments

Summary:  Camelina cultivation requirements are assessed by the authors, as well as pilot scale oil recovery to calculate life cycle analyses of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and energy demand; a comparison with the rapeseed cultivation in Romania is also conducted. The best result obtained for camelina value chain, regarding the greenhouse gas emissions reduction was over 60% compared to petroleum …

Development of emission parameters and net energy ratio for renewable diesel from Canola and Camelina – P. Miller and A. Kumar – Energy 2013

David Roberts Camelina Production Sustainability 0 Comments

Summary: This study estimated the greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) and net energy ratio (NER) for producing hydrogenation-derived renewable diesel (HDRD) from canola and camelina in Western Canada. HDRD from camelina is environmentally superior to HDRD from canola due to lower agricultural inputs and higher yield for camelina. Considering all of the scenarios examined, HDRD from both crops appears to be …

Sustainable Oil Crops Production – C. Eynck D. Shrestha, J. Vollmann, K.C. Falk, W. Friedt, H.P. Singh & E. Obeng in Biofuel Crop Sustainability ed. Bharat Singh 2013

Summary: The international biodiesel market is dominated by rapeseed oil, followed by soybean and palm oil. However, other crop platforms such as camelina and the recently emerged Ethiopian mustard hold promise as new biodiesel feedstocks. This chapter presents an overview on sustainability considerations associated with each of these oil crops. Life-cycle analysis (LCA) shows that biodiesel from soybean and rapeseed …

Life cycle assessment of camelina oil derived biodiesel and jet fuel in the Canadian Prairies – X. Li, E. Mupondwa – Total Environment 2014

David Roberts Camelina Production Sustainability 0 Comments

Summary: This study evaluated the environmental impact of biodiesel and hydroprocessed renewable jet fuel derived from camelina oil in terms of global warming potential, human health, ecosystem quality, and energy resource consumption. The life cycle inventory is based on production activities in the Canadian Prairies and encompasses activities ranging from agricultural production to oil extraction and fuel conversion. The lower …

A life cycle assessment of biodiesel derived from the “niche filling” energy crop camelina in the USA – B.J. Krohn, and M. Fripp – Applied Energy 2012
