LCA case study: comparison between independent and coproduction pathways for the production of ethyl and n-butyl acetates

Abstract : The production of ethyl acetate and n-butyl acetate was investigated through two different pathways: either by independent reactions or by coproduction. In the coproduction pathway, the n-butyl acetate was produced by reusing the by-products of the synthesis of ethyl acetate. This study provides a comparison of the environmental impacts of these two pathways using a life cycle assessment (LCA). A discussion about the use of LCA on chemicals and its challenges was also developed.
