Life-Cycle Analysis for Transportation Symposium

About the Symposium

The second annual Life-Cycle Analysis (LCA) for Transportation Symposium will take place Nov. 16-17, 2023, at Southwest Research Institute in San Antonio, Texas. The event showcases various academic, industry and institutional research efforts on LCA topics. Life-cycle analysis is a vital tool to understand total emissions produced during the manufacture, use and recycling/disposal of automotive vehicles. A “zero” definition at the tailpipe does not fully capture total cradle-to-grave emissions. With a focus on policy, this symposium is ideally placed to help guide future rulemaking efforts.

New for 2023!

This year’s event will be in person for the first time. It will also be part of the week-long Global Decarbonized Mobility Summit, also at SwRI. Summit participants will have the opportunity to speak about topics and learn and engage with technical and policy experts by participating in discussions, tours and mixers.

Call for 2023 Speakers

We are accepting abstracts for speakers on a broad spectrum of topics related to life-cycle analysis for transportation. Please submit abstracts and questions to Graham Conway, Ph.D., Symposium Chair, or call +1 210 522 5134 for more information.
