Abstract

•The environmental impacts of six different bio-oil upgrading scenarios are analysed.•Expected, optimistic, and pessimistic values are evaluated.•CO2 equivalent emissions are expected to range from 2240 to 6000 gCO2e/kg of biofuel.•A worst-case scenario leads to CO2e emissions tripling in comparison to fossil fuel.
