LCA of carbon capture at incineration plants

The latest research published in the journal ACS Sustainable Chemistry and Engineering has revealed that sustainable environmentally-friendly recycling of graphite is possible by considering the environmental footprint layout via the life cycle assessment (LCA) process.  

The OpenLCA program and the Ecoinvent 3.7 Dataset were used to conduct LCA studies. The material and energy input accounting for the processing of 100 kg of graphite was determined, with 1 kg of regenerated graphite serving as a system component. Except for the Fenton + flotation method, which gives significantly higher values, GWPs ranging from 0.53 to 9.76 kg CO2 equiv. kggraphite-1 are achieved, demonstrating unequivocally that graphite reclamation procedures are ecologically viable with pristine graphite production.
