Abstract [en]

Biodiesel is a widely used fuel that meets the renewable fuel standards developed under Energy Policy Act of 2005. However, biodiesel is known to pose a series of abiotic and biotic corrosion risks to storage tanks. A typical practice (incumbent system) used to protect the tanks from the risks include: (i) coat the interior surface of the tank with solvent free epoxy (SFE) liner, and (ii) add a biocide in the tank. We present a screening-level, life cycle assessment study to evaluate and compare the environmental performance of graphene-oxide (GO)-epoxy (GOE) liner with the incumbent system. TRACI is used as an impact assessment tool to model midpoint environmental impacts for the ten categories: global warming potential (GWP, kg CO2 eq.); acidification potential (AP, kg SO2 eq.); potential human health damage impacts due to carcinogens (HH-CP, CTUh) and non-carcinogens (HH-NCP, CTUh); potential respiratory effects (REP, kg PM2.5 eq); eutrophication potential (EP, kg N eq); ozone depletion potential (ODP kg CFC-11 eq); ecotoxicity potential (ETXP, CTUe); smog formation potential (SFP kg O3 eq); and fossil fuel depletion potential (FFDP MJ surplus). The equivalent functional unit of the LCA study is designed to protect the 30 m2 of the interior surface (unalloyed steel sheet) of a 10,000 liters biodiesel tank against abiotic and biotic corrosion during its service life of 20 years. Overall, this LCA study highlights an improved environmental performance for the GOE liner compared to the incumbent system; GOE-liner system showed: 91% lower ODP impacts; 59% smaller for REP; 62% smaller for AP; 67-69% smaller for GWP and HH-CP; 72-76% smaller for EP, SFP, and FFDP; and 81-83% smaller for ETXP and HH-NCP categories. The scenario analysis study reveals that these potential impacts change by less than 15% when the GOE liners are functionalized with silanized-GO nanosheets or GO-reinforced, polyvinyl carbazole to improve the antimicrobial properties. The results from uncertainty analysis indicate that the impacts for the incumbent system are more sensitive to changes in key modeling parameters compared to that for GOE liner system.
