Abstract This document provides a summary of the proposed research to assesses the development and use of a Life Cycle Assessment to investigate the environmental impact of the employment of natural gas and biomass to generate electricity in power plants. Use of both technologies are analysed with and without inclusion of carbon capture technology. A preliminary examination of the benefits and drawbacks of carbon capture is done. The document also provides the proposed methodology for the research and suggests a schedule for the full dissertation. 2. Introduction and Background Life Cycle Assessment of power plants has become very important, considering the mandatory requirements to reduce emission of green house gases. Power plants in UK use fuels such as natural gas, biomass, coal, oil and nuclear power. This report will focus on natural gas and biomass fuels. ...
