Abstract

The study focused on environmental evaluation of the disposed wooden railway sleeper gasification system used for electrical energy production. The aforementioned base technology was referred to the system producing electricity from disposed wooden railway sleepers through combustion. The evaluation was carried out using the LCA technique. The results show that in scope of impact on human health and ecosystems, the technology based on sleeper gasification is friendlier to the environment than the alternative technology. The technology of reference produces a lower environmental burden in scope of depletion of non-renewable natural resources. In comparison of the base technology (gasification) and the alternative technology (combustion), the end environmental effect shows that in scope of the analysis the base technology, i.e. the technology involving gasification of disposed railway sleepers, is more friendly to the environment.
