The Global Bioenergy Partnership Common Methodological Framework for GHG Lifecycle Analysis of Bioenergy,
Version Zero
Author Global Bioenergy Partnership (GBEP)
Year
2009
Topic Sustainability certifcation and standards, GHG
Type
Impact assessment,
tool, guidelines
Geographical Coverage Global
Target audience/ users
Decision-makers, policy analysts
This method is comprised of a 10-step greenhouse gas (GHG) inventory framework that is intended
to guide policy makers and institutions when calculating GHG emissions from bioenergy and to
enable life cycle assessments (LCA) of the GHG emissions of particular bioenergy systems to be
compared on an equal basis with other energy options.

technology
Geographical Coverage Global
Target audience/ users Researchers; analysts
The GREET model provides a freely available Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) methodology and is particu-
larly applicable to the assessment of life cycles of biofuels for transport. It allows researchers and
analysts to evaluate various vehicle and fuel combinations on a full fuel-cycle/vehicle-cycle basis.

Tool
Geographical Coverage North America, Asia, Global
Target audience/ users
GHGenius is a lifecycle assessment model that has been developed for Natural Resources Canada
over the past ten years. It is based on the 1998 version of Dr. Mark Delucchi’s Lifecycle Emissions
Model (LEM). GHGenius is capable of analyzing the emissions of many contaminants associated
with the production and use of traditional and alternative transportation fuels.
