COFALEC is pleased to present the results of the study conducted by PwC(PricewaterhouseCooper).
"With the determination of the Carbon Footprint of yeast, COFALEC adds a new contribution to its long term commitment to environmental issues that impact the future of our planet." says Gérard Blin, President of COFALEC.
The Carbon Footprint of European Yeasts has been calculated using the life cycle assessment (LCA) method focusing on climate change impact.
The Carbon Footprint of European Yeasts is calculated for three functionnal units:
- 1Kg of liquid yeast = 363 Grams equivalent CO2
- 1Kg of compressed yeast = 734 Grams equivalent CO2
- 1Kg of dry yeast = 3204 Grams equivalent CO2
The contribution of the different steps of the production process is detailed in this study.
