Life cycle energy and greenhouse gas analysis for agave-derived bioethanol

Abstract:

The sustainability of large-scale biofuel production has recently been called into question in view of mounting concerns over the associated impact on land and water resources. As the most predominant biofuel today, ethanol produced from food crops such as corn in the US has been frequently criticised.
