Section II: Object
Pilot Study on Determining the Environmental Impacts of Conventional and Alternatively Fuelled Vehicles through Life Cycle Assessment
The aim of the study is to compare the life cycle greenhouse gas emissions and key impact on the environment and human health of light duty vehicles (passenger cars and vans) and heavy duty vehicles (trucks, buses and coaches) that are powered by different types of powertrains (internal combustion engines and electric motors) and that use different types of fuel or transport energy. The study will cover fossil fuels (petrol, diesel, LNG, natural gas), biofuels and other alternative fuels, as well as electricity. The impact will be assessed over the entire life cycle of the vehicle, including the production, the use phase, and the end-of-life/recycling, and it will take into account fuel and energy production and consumption. It covers the time period 2020-2050.
Open call for tender, single contract for 18 months, non-renewable.
