Impact on the Polyester Value Chain of Using p-Xylene Derived from Biomass

(:Unkn) Unknown
© 2017 American Chemical Society. Life cycle assessment has been used to investigate the environmental impacts associated with using p-xylene produced from biomass rather than from the processing of naphtha in the production of polyethylene terephthalate (PET). The cases investigated were for polymer production and distribution facilities in the United States. The types of biomass considered were corn stover, willow, and sugar cane (both juice and bagasse). The best case for minimizing global warming potential...
