Abstract

Benchmarking the environmental sustainability of alcohol produced
from legume starch against alcohol produced from cereal
grains requires considering of crop production, nutrient cycling
and use of protein-rich co-products via life cycle assessment. This
article describes the mass balance flows behind the life cycle inventories
for gin produced from wheat and peas (Pisum sativum L.)
in an associated article summarising the environmental footprints
of wheat- and pea-gin [1], and also presents detailed supplementary
results. Activity data were collected from interviews with
actors along the entire gin value chain including a distillery
manager and ingredient and packaging suppliers. Important fertiliser
and animal-feed substitution effects of co-product use were
derived using detailed information and models on nutrient flows
and animal feed composition, along with linear optimisation
modelling. Secondary data on environmental burdens of specific
materials and processes were obtained from the Ecoinvent v3.4 life cycle assessment database. This article provides a basis for further
quantitative evaluation of the environmental sustainability of
legume-alcohol value chains.
