Life-Cycle Analysis for Transportation Symposium

Go to Life-Cycle Analysis for Transportation Symposium

About the Symposium

The first annual Life-Cycle Analysis (LCA) for Transportation Symposium, taking place one day on Nov. 3, is to showcase various academic, industry, and institutional research efforts on LCA topics. The goal of the Life-Cycle Analysis (LCA) is a vital tool to understand total emissions produced during the manufacture, life, and recycling of a vehicle. 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.

Symposium Speakers

Speakers kick off at 9 a.m. U.S. Eastern Time / 8 a.m. U.S. Central Time.
