Description

Using a Hybrid Life Cycle Analysis, we compared the production of beef and soy to see the difference between water consumption, greenhouse gases, energy needs, and other environmental impacts. With many people deciding to choose a meatless diet to reduce their environmental impact, we sought to determine if this diet change is more environmentally friendly. This project addresses the US Sustainable Development goal 12, Responsible Production and Consumption.
