In this study, data on resource use and emissions for dairy farms in southwestern Sweden were collected and analysed with Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) methodology. The purpose of the study was to gain increased knowledge of the environmental impact of today´s milk production and of the variations between farms regarding resource use and emissions. Data were(More)
To identify mitigation options to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from milk production (i.e. the carbon footprint (CF) of milk), this study examined the variation in GHG emissions among dairy farms using data from previous CF studies on Swedish milk. Variations between farms in these production data, which were found to have a strong influence on milk(More)
To reduce the environmental impact of a product efficiently, it is crucial to consider the entire value chain of the product; that is, to apply life cycle thinking, to avoid suboptimization and identify the areas where the largest potential improvements can be made. This study analyzed the carbon footprint (CF) of butter and dairy blend products, with the(More)
BACKGROUND Dairy products are important in a healthy diet due to their high nutritional value; they are, however, associated with relatively large greenhouse gas emissions (GHGE) per kg product. When discussing the need to reduce the GHGE caused by the food system, it is crucial to consider the nutritional value of alternative food choices. OBJECTIVE The(More)
