Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) is excited to announce its first annual Life-Cycle Analysis for Transportation Symposium. The goal of this symposium is to showcase various academic, industry, and institutional research efforts on life-cycle analysis topics. We hope to highlight the various assumptions and conclusions being used to shape the future of our industry. With a focus on policy, this symposium is ideally placed to help guide future rulemaking efforts.
Abstracts are being solicited that provide perspective on the life-cycle analysis challenges facing the industry. We encourage you to submit a relevant abstract for the opportunity to give an oral-only presentation during the symposium.
Topics sought include but are not limited to:
Policy and Rulemaking
Updates on LCA in rulemaking and plans for implementation
Comparison of different powertrain types and scenarios
Alternative Energy Sources
Battery types and chemistries
Hydrogen production and storage
Alternative fuels, e-fuels, and bio-fuels
Manufacturing and Recycling
Designing with recyclable materials and components
Battery second-use strategies and recycling
Designs for end-of-life teardown and recycling
Electrical grid and infrastructure
