Abstract

This study aimed to assess the environmental impact of the sugarcane industry, focusing on the cradle-to-gate process. The research framework comprised four primary stages: defining the objectives and scope, inventory compilation, life cycle assessment, and interpretation of results. The life cycle assessment (LCA) began by cataloging the inputs and outputs associated with the desired product. Subsequently, emission data was gathered and analyzed using the openLCA software. Following this inventory compilation, an in-depth interpretation of the emission data was conducted. Sugarcane processing can be segmented into four main phases: sugar milling, clarification, crystallization, and centrifugal separation. The life cycle assessment then delved into these four stages, covering both sugarcane cultivation and sugar production.
