Project Profile

Project Title Life cycle analysis of transport modes
Project Code 2011UD02
Project Status Completed
End Date July 2012
Sponsor(s) National Transport Development Policy Committee
Division Sustainable Habitat
Description

The aim of the study is to conduct a life cycle analysis of different modes of transport to estimate their impact on energy consumption and carbon emissions. Specific study objectives include:
- To develop a methodology for life cycle assessment of the selected modes of transport
- To estimate per unit energy consumption and carbon emission values for the selected modes of transport for different stages of their life cycle namely, construction, operations and maintenance

LCA (Life Cycle Analysis) for Transport Modes

A study on life cycle analysis (LCA) of transport modes was commissioned to TERI by the National Transport Development Policy Committee (NTDPC) constituted by the Government of India. Read more →
