does not include materials recycling Not possible to determine California-specific GHG emissions Products cannot be directly compared due to varying functional units Limitations: Useful for Pareto analysis of largest GHG contributors Can be coupled with annual production volumes to estimate a GHG “footprint” for California industry Provides indication of the role of California-based businesses in global GHG emissions and opportunities for green design and manufacturing improvements Insights: Fifty Product LCA Results:  Fifty Product LCA Results Selected for case studies Screening of Fifty Products: kg CO2e/unit Case study goals:  Case study goals Perform a detailed LCA on two important California-manufactured products Identify potential GHG mitigation measures at each stage of the product life cycle Quantify the potential annual GHG reductions possible in California for each identified measure Identify policy options in California for implementing the identified measures Personal Computers (PCs):  Personal Computers (PCs) Manufacturing Use End-of-Life 169 million PCs were manufactured globally in 2003 California’s role in global PC manufacturing: Computer assembly Semiconductor chips Electronic components California’s “hi tech” sector employs over 700,000 people An estimated 16 million PCs are currently installed in California homes and businesses, more than any other US state An estimated 10,000 PCs become obsolete in California every day Courtesy of Apple PC Life-Cycle GHG Emissions:  PC Life-Cycle GHG Emissions Production energy is 2.7% of 2001 primary energy consumed by California’s industrial sector Use energy is 1.7% of 2001 primary electrical energy consumed by California’s residential and commercial sectors Total estimated life-cycle GHG emissions are 1.5% of California’s 1999 gross GHG emissions Estimated Life-Cycle Emissions PC Case Study: Manufacturing GHG emissions:  PC Case Study: Manufacturing GHG emissions Primary data source: Williams (2003) PC Case Study: Use GHG emissions:  PC Case Study: Use GHG emissions A 75:25 ratio is assumed for the ratio of CRT monitors to LCDs in California homes and businesses Electricity consumption is calculated using the unit energy consumption (UEC) approach based on residential and office PC usage patterns Electricity consumption is converted to GHG emissions using a California-specific emission factor developed by LBNL Estimated Emissions PC Case study: End-of-life GHG emissions:  PC Case study: End-of-life GHG emissions Estimated Emissions An obsolescence rate of 3.6 million PCs per year is assumed (10,000/day) All CRT monitors and LCDs are assumed to be recycled per California’s Electronic Waste Recycling Act of 2003 A PC control unit recycling rate of 8% is assumed PC Case study: Measures identified:  PC Case study: Measures identified Summary of Potential Measures and GHG Reductions * % reduction in relation to California PC life-cycle GHG emissions of 5.90 MtCO2e/yr. Policy opportunities for California:  Policy opportunities for California Increased clean room energy efficiency Improvements to air handling systems, chillers, recirculation fans, and process controls can lead to energy savings of 30-60% Common barriers to implementation include compressed production cycles, inertia, and lack of awareness of benefits of energy efficiency Continue to promote energy efficiency progress through increased R&D, energy efficiency targets, and incentives Reduction of PFC emissions from semiconductor manufacture U.S. EPA’s voluntary PFC Reduction/Climate Partnership for the Semiconductor Industry aims to reduce U.S. PFC emissions from semiconductor manufacturing to 10% less than 1995 levels by 2010 A high level of industry participation is critical to success Policy opportunities depend on level of participation by California facilities Policy opportunities for California:  Policy opportunities for California Power management awareness campaigns Only an estimated 25% of PC control units and 75% of PC displays utilize power management features PCs left on overnight are also a major consumer of energy Awareness campaigns targeting California commercial PC users (75% of electricity consumed by California PCs) could be particularly effective Promotion of facility “switch off” campaigns Adoption and promotion of green procurement policies for PCs Large institutional buyers could give preferential buying status for: Certification to the most stringent Energy Star standard IEEE 1621 (power management usability) compliance Eco-label certification (TCO 99, Blue Angel, EU Eco Flower) to ensure green design (recyclability, upgradeability, etc.) LCDs instead of CRTs Manufacturers with established “take-back” systems US EPA Electronic Products Environmental Assessment Tool (http://www.epeat.net/) Policy opportunities for California:  Policy opportunities for California Increase PC control unit recycling in California Only CRT monitors, notebooks, and LCDs are currently included in California’s landmark Electronics Waste Recycling Act of 2003, which aims to establish a viable e-waste recycling infrastructure in California The inclusion of PC control units should be considered Institutional policies… Encouragement of PC reuse (“down cycling”) and upgrading within large organizations Cement/Concrete:  Cement/Concrete Manufacturing Use Highway road construction leads to higher CO2 emissions than asphalt roads, but some studies show reduced resistance and increased fuel savings for heavy trucks Insulated concrete houses have a higher thermal mass which may lead to increased fuel savings over the lifetime of the house End-of-Life Energy consumed for demolition, transport, and grinding (in cases where concrete is recycled) Concrete Life-Cycle GHG Emissions:  Concrete Life-Cycle GHG Emissions Estimated Life-Cycle Emissions Concrete Case Study: Manufacturing Measures:  Increased energy efficiency improvement Technical potential of ~20% in California based on replacing current equipment with best practice technology Use of alternative or waste-derived fuels 90% of energy use is from fuels (mostly coal); 10% electricity Tires, rubber, paper waste, waste oils, waste wood, paper sludge, sewage sludge, plastics and spent solvents can replace fossil fuels Assume 20% replacement of fossil fuels by waste fuels is possible in California kilns Concrete Case Study: Manufacturing Measures Concrete Case Study: Manufacturing Measures:  Concrete Case Study: Manufacturing Measures Blended Cement Fly ash from coal-fired power stations, blast furnace slag from iron production, or other materials are inter-ground with clinker Reduces both fuel-related and process-related emissions Commonly used in most countries Limestone or Addition to Portland Cement Uses ground limestone to replace clinker CemStar© Process Uses steel slag to replace clinker Concrete Case Study: Use Measures:  Concrete Case Study: Use Measures Highway Road Construction Some studies show that concrete roads result in reduced resistance and increased fuel savings for heavy trucks Insulated Concrete Houses Have higher thermal mass May lead to increased fuel savings over lifetime of the house Reductions depend strongly on the climate Concrete Case Study: End-of-Life Measures:  Concrete Case Study: End-of-Life Measures Use of Recycled Concrete Aggregate (RCA) Typically, concrete is landfilled, ground and used as roadbed, or recycled as aggregate Allowed for use in California City of San Francisco recently approved the use of RCA for curbs, gutters, sidewalks, and street bases CalTrans and other agencies are still reviewing the use of RCA Concrete Case study: Measures identified:  Concrete Case study: Measures identified Summary of Potential Measures and GHG Reductions * % reduction in relation to California cement/concrete life-cycle GHG emissions of 11.40 MtCO2e/yr. Policy options for California:  Policy options for California Increased energy efficiency improvements Establish energy-efficiency targets or goals Common practice in many countries Government provides incentives and support in exchange for achievement of targets Development and use of BEST-Cement User-friendly Excel tool to benchmark plants to best practice Identifies energy-efficiency technologies and measures for an individual plant Provides energy savings, emissions reductions, costs, and payback times Based on similar BEST-Steel and BEST-Winery tools developed by LBNL 29 sectors signed; many met or exceeded targets Agreements 22.3% savings over 10-year period 2x business-as-usual Long-Term Agreements in The Netherlands Policy options for California:  Policy options for California Procurement and product specifications for changes in cement composition Blended cements (fly-ash, blast furnace slag, or other materials) Change specifications to allow for non-Portland cement (many agencies and constructors mandate Portland cement) City of Berkeley Resolution directing procurement of blended cement for City buildings and other construction (12/2002) Limestone addition PCA has proposed to change ASTM standard to allow 5% ground limestone in Portland cement (European standards allow 6-35% limestone) Crews put in a new foundation, made of 50 percent fly ash, at Wurster Hall. Arleen Ng photo Policy options for California:  Policy options for California Use of alternative or waste-derived fuels Research and development of information to overcome public concerns about hazardous air pollutants from waste-derived fuels such as tires, rubber, paper waste, waste oils, waste wood, paper sludge, sewage sludge, plastics and spent solvents Increased recycling of concrete Promote the use of recycled concrete as aggregate Conclusions:  Conclusions Systematic, life-cycle optimization approach to identifying GHG emissions and policy options provides a broader perspective Mitigation options for the two case studies have a technical potential savings of nearly 4 MtCO2/yr, or about 1% of California’s 1999 net GHG emissions of 398 MtCO2 Such potential savings represent economic waste, energy losses, and pollution – all of which are important to reduce in order to maintain California’s position as both an economic and environmental global leader Future research: general issues:  Future research: general issues Improved data Data on actual manufacturing output by product for California Updated data for EIO-LCA database (after 1997) California state input-output analyses Updated data on California GHG emissions (after 1999) Alternate metrics for comparison of products Economic: per price or value added Total CA annual production Typical per capita consumption Future research: general issues:  Future research: general issues Evaluation of more products Only two products evaluated in detail in this project. Other interesting products include water pumps, semiconductor equipment, asphalt paving mixtures, tires, etc. Include materials recycling “credits” Evaluation of costs and savings associated with implementation of suggested GHG mitigation options Can serve as inputs for the regional economic model being developed by Berck, Roland-Holst, et al. Future research: PCs :  Future research: PCs Improved data and information Information on what PC components are manufactured in California and at what annual volumes Better data on the use characteristics of California’s PC stock (CRTs vs. LCDs, total number installed, usage patterns, etc.) Updated LCA data on PCs Assessment of the saturation level of the proposed GHG mitigation measures in California Forecasting studies to determine the most robust GHG mitigation measures in California considering expanding use, rapidly evolving technology, and shift to overseas manufacturing Future research: cement/concrete :  Future research: cement/concrete Improved data and information California-specific emissions factors for waste-derived fuels Information on use of cement and concrete in pavement and housing construction Fuel efficiency of concrete versus asphalt roads in California, especially for heavy trucks Further assessment of the use-phase savings (or increases) related to concrete house construction Study of construction and demolition waste streams in California to better understand flows of concrete and identify opportunities to recycle concrete
