- 09.25.11 | GREEN CAR CONGRESS: Study finds well-to-wheels GHG emissions of GTL diesel lower than that of petroleum diesel when co-product displacement is considered
Using a co-product displacement method (i.e., substitution) rather than an energy-based allocation method to assess the lifecycle (well-to-wheels, WTW) emissions of gas-to-liquids (GTL) technology results in WTW greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions lower than that of petroleum diesel, according to a paper by a team from Sasol Synfuels International and Baker and O’Brien published in the ACS journal Environmental Science and Technology.
