New study published: soy granule – how sustainable it really is?

On Monday, 13.12.2011 a recent SERI study was presented at a press conference. The aim of this study was to enable a serious comparison between the environmental sustainability of dry soy products and meat. Starting point is the high level of meat consumption in the industrialized countries which makes a significant contribution to the climate change. Various environmental indicators for soy granule have been calculated. Such as renewable and nonrenewable resources, land and water consumption and CO2 emissions.

The result: meat cannot keep up, compared to soy dry products. The replacement of ground meat with soy granules allows a GHG reduction of 90 percent!

    Where in the study does it say that the replacement of ground meat with soy granules allows a GHG reduction of 90 percent? I downloaded the pdf and nowhere in the document is there a comparison with meat. Can you please direct me to the study that draws a comparison between the two?
