Life Cycle Assessment

Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) developed the GREET 2016 model (Greenhouse gases, Regulated Emissions, and Energy use in Transportation)l  to evaluate energy and emission impacts of advanced vehicle technologies and new transportation fuels. GREET allows researchers to analyze the fuel cycle from wells to wheels and the vehicle cycle through material recovery and vehicle disposal.

Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy's Office (DOE) of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE), GREET provides the user with an easy-to-use and fully graphical toolbox to perform life cycle analysis simulations of alternative transportation fuels and vehicle technologies. The interface allows faster development using graphical representation of each element in the model, and drag and drop editing approach to add and modify data.
