The latest paper entitled ‘Assessing decarbonisation pathways in the food and beverage sector: A multi-criteria decision analysis approach’ by MaREI researchers at University College Cork assesses 21 decarbonisation pathways for food & beverage using 5 MCDA methods.
• Economic performance and emission savings were antagonistic.
• Anaerobic digestion was needed to achieve emissions savings greater than 67%.
• Equal criteria weights facilitated a profitable emissions reduction of 43%.
• Subjective criteria weights led to the least cost route to 100% emissions saving.
Latest @MaREIcentre @eriucc paper assesses 21 decarbonisation pathways for food & beverage
using 5 MCDA methods. More financially viable pathways achieved lower GHG emission savings. Pathways with GHG savings > 67% included digestion of by-products
