With the high development of petrochemical engineering in our country, the problem of environmental pollution is more and more serious. Life cycle assessment is carried out for evaluating various chemicals in our project, which can provide a comprehensive understanding of the potentially environmental burden of the chemical production, and will identify the significant potential for improving the efficiency of energy and reducing GHG emissions.
