What's the "carbon footprint" for producing and using biofuels? This video walks you through the process of setting up an life cycle assessment of biofuels for carbon. We look at each step of biofuel production from the field to the refinery to the pump and calculate carbon inputs and outputs along the way. This video is a supplement for these GLBRC classroom activities: Life Cycle Assessment of Biofuels 101 and Quantitative Modeling of Biofuels Life Cycles.
