This report is intended to provide basic information on GHG emissions for the feedstocks, fuels, energy systems, and materials found in GHGenius to researchers who may want to have a preliminary understanding of the GHG emissions impact of their work. The data presented here is primarily based on the default assumptions for fuel production processes in GHGenius. In many cases the data is presented using multiple functional units, per GJ or per tonne for example. In order to keep the size of this document manageable only very brief explanations are provided of the assumptions and methodology used in GHGenius. Users who wish more detailed information should refer to the GHGenius documentation guide that is available at the reports page of the GHGenius website.

This report documents the development of the model and provide the user with an understanding of the primary functions of the model. There is a detailed explanation of each sheet in the model including the data that an advanced user may wish to adjust for a more detailed analysis of a particular fuel pathway. There are references to the latest documentation of the Delucchi LEM and a discussion of where there have been deviations in the development of the two models.

This report also includes instructions on how to run the model and the various options available to the user to provide the user with the desired output.

As part of this work, there have been several changes to the model. The model is now an Excel spreadsheet rather than a Lotus 123 file and the model now uses metric units rather than the mixture of units previously used. The change in units has resulted in more uniformity in how each pathway is modelled. The version of the model that accompanies this report is called GHGenius 3.0. There is information on all of the pathways that have been added to the model in the past two years since the last users guide was prepared.
