Table 9 GHG emission analysis of road transport

From: Assessing the sweet sorghum-based ethanol potential on saline–alkali land with DSSAT model and LCA approach

Stage Distance (km) Fuel intensity (L·t−1·km−1) [40,41,42] Carbon emission factor [31, 40,41,42] Conversion coefficient to ethanol GHG emission (kg CO2 eq/t ethanol)a
Sweet sorghum transport 88 0.05 0.85 kg CO2 eq /L 16 59.84
Ethanol transport 100 0.05 0.85 kg CO2 eq /L 1 4.25
Summary 188 64.09
