I have a system based on the sugar industry that includes the following processes:
- Ethanol production (from molasses)
- Electricity production (from bagasse)
Processing sugarcane in a sugar mill produces molasses and bagasse that are further used to produce ethanol and electricity. I am trying to create a single product system that can simulate the overall impacts of processing 1 ton of sugarcane, including ethanol and electricity production processes.
In brief, I am trying to simulate the overall impacts for the following:
- 1 kg of ethanol produced
- 1 kWh of electricity produced
I have created a product system for ethanol production that includes all the upstream processes. I have also linked electricity production to this ethanol product system by using the "add recipients" option. When I'm trying to estimate the overall impacts w.r.t the reference flow, I can only choose ethanol produced (kg) as the Reference flow. Is there a way that I can also choose electricity produced (kWh) as the Reference flow and estimate the impacts? Is it possible to select multiple Reference Flows for a single product system with varied target amounts?
