DF 66: 66th LCA Discussion Forum

DF 66 — LCA of Mobility solutions: approaches and findings

Discussion forum on Life Cycle Assessment
Wednesday, 30 August 2017, ETH Zürich, Alumni Pavillon

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 of 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-o f-the art assessment of mobility – from the individual technology to the system level and covering the environmental, social and economic dimensions. Mobility companies will show how they are applying LCA in daily work. 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.
