LCA of Mobility solutions: approaches and findings

Passenger and freight transport are causing substantial environmental burdens contributing to global warming and other adverse impacts on human health and ecosystems due to emission of pollutants, noise, etc. Despite the introduction of cleaner technologies, overall mobility related burdens con­tinue to increase. However, the mobility sector might face substantial changes such as the shift from fossil fuels to electricity and electricity-based fuels or the introduction of autonomous vehicles with yet un­known environmental consequences.

This discussion forum will provide insights into state-of-the art assessment of mobility – from the individ­ual technology to the system level and covering the environmental, social and economic dimensions. User-friendly tools for the comparative evaluation of mobility options in business and administration, such as mobitool v2.0, will be presented, including case studies from first applications. Furthermore, assess­ments of large-scale mobility solutions for entire re­gions will be shown, for the current situation as well as future scenarios, including major technology de­velopments and changes

This discussion forum is intended to foster the exchange between scientists and LCA practitioners.
