Description
Report on bioethanol carbon footprint BIO4 BG1 BG2(2019). This document summarizes the preliminary analysis of the productive chain of bioethanol and by-products from corn by Bio4 and its integrated biogas plants Rio Cuarto Córdoba
Preliminary analysis of the productive chain of bioethanol and by-products from corn by Bio4 and its integrated biogas plants Rio Cuarto, Córdoba. The growing concern about the sustainability of biofuels has led scientific institutions, academics as well as certain governments and institutions to work intensively on these issues. Given the significant participation of Argentina as the world's leading exporter of biofuels, its evolution is analyzed with great attention as well as other possible sources of biomass, which implies a new demand for INTA areas and programs as well as its units. Within the criteria of sustainability, one of the analyzed is the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) derived from the use of biofuels. In particular, the Directive proposes that a reduction of at least 35% must be ensured in order to be able to access the corresponding tax benefits, subsequently raising a level of reductions as of 2017 (50%) and as of 2018 (60%).
