LCA GHG emissions in production and combustion of Malaysian palm oil biodiesel
J.M. van Zutphen, R.A. Wijbrans

Abstract
The LCA GHG emission in the production and combustion of palm oil biodiesel at 1,601 kg CO2/ tonne of biodiesel is 2.6 times lower than that for fossil diesel. The LCA GHG emission reduction savings is, thus, 62% and exceeds the threshold value of 35% needed by EU for renewable sources to qualify for use as biofuels. Palm biodiesel has a great potential to improve its carbon balance further, exceeding 62% savings, by utilizing its waste products arising from oil palm cultivation and during palm biodiesel production.
