This is a two page handout that details the user inputs on the Input sheet. Note that it is not comprehensive enough to replace any of the existing documentation, but meant as a quick checklist for model runs. It is accurate for version 3.16 of the model.

 Feedstock Emissions
 Prepared August 2010
 Download | View Abstract | Hide Abstract
There is increased interest in the emissions associated with feedstock production for use in LCA work for non-transportation fuel pathways. For example, work has been done on establishing the carbon footprint for some livestock species as well as for milk production. All of this work needs either to include the production of feedstocks like corn, barley, and other feed grains, or to have emission factors for these materials.

This work has developed a new output sheet for the emissions from the production of feedstocks. The emissions are presented on the basis of g/tonne feedstock delivered. The emissions are presented for all of the GHG and CAC emissions in the model. The results from this work could be used as emission factors for other LCA work being undertaken by others.

This work will also allow for easier comparison to some of the emission estimates that have been produced by Agriculture Canada for feedstock production. This comparison should eventually allow for some reconciliation between the GHGenius estimates and the work that Agriculture Canada has been doing using somewhat different data sources.

The data in GHGenius is continually being updated as new information becomes available. Three new data sources have been identified for areas of the model that have not been updated for many years. These are the energy required to manufacture vehicles, the energy required to manufacture farm tractors, and some new information on canola production and crushing. All three changes result in some reduction in emissions for the fuel pathways that are impacted.
