This briefing reviews recent research regarding greenhouse gas emissions from the manufacturing of lithiumion batteries for electric vehicles. We analyze this research in the overall context of lifecycle emissions of electric cars as compared to conventional internal combustion vehicles in Europe. Finally, we discuss the primary drivers of battery manufacturing emissions and
Halve the greenhouse gas impact of our products across the lifecycle by 2030 (this target covers all the phases across the lifecycle of our products: ingredients/raw materials, manufacturing, distribution, retail, packaging, consumer use and disposal).

2 Comparing Life Cycle Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Natural Gas and Coal (LCA) 5 finds that the EPA''s new methodology increases the lifecycle emissions estimate of natural gasfired electricity for the baseline year of 2008 by about 11 percent compared with its 2010 methodology.
Lifecycle analysis, sometimes referred to as fuel cycle or welltowheel analysis, is used to assess the overall greenhouse gas (GHG) impacts of a fuel, including each stage of its production and use. EPA''s lifecycle analysis includes significant indirect emissions as required by the Clean Air Act.
•Greenhouse gases (GHG) covered by this standard are the following 6 gases subject to the Kyoto Protocol. •For each regional market, the emissions data should be obtained (calculated) from the "product lifecycle viewpoint". For Honda* For Honda* For Honda* For Honda* For Honda*
Life Cycle Assessment Harmonization. In this project, NREL reviewed and harmonized life cycle assessments (LCAs) of electricity generation technologies to reduce uncertainty around estimates for environmental impacts and increase the value of these assessments to the
Argonne National Laboratory (Argonne) conducted a lifecycle analysis to compare the materials, energy requirements, and emissions associated with producing, processing, transporting, and consuming natural gas produced from conventional natural gas resources and shale gas resources. Argonne''s GREET (Greenhouse gases, Regulated Emissions, and

The lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions are calculated per vehicle and over a total driving range of 180 000 km using the average European electricity mix. Processbased attributional LCA and the ReCiPe characterisation method are used to estimate the climate change potential from the hierarchical perspective. The differently sized EVs are

Climate and Environmental Impacts. The chart below shows the lifecycle total of greenhouse gas emissions for common protein foods and vegetables, expressed as kilograms (kg) of carbon dioxide equivalents (CO 2 e) per kg of consumed product. We compared our production emissions data for the main meat proteins to several mostly peerreviewed or governmentsponsored studies in the U.S. and
The plastic pollution crisis that overwhelms our oceans is also a significant and growing threat to the Earth''s climate. At current levels, greenhouse gas emissions from the plastic lifecycle threaten the ability of the global community to keep global temperature rise below1.5°C. With the petrochemical and plastic industries planning a massive expansion in production, the problem is on
EPA Lifecycle Analysis of Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Renewable Fuels As part of proposed revisions to the National Renewable Fuel Standard program (commonly known as the RFS program), EPA analyzed lifecycle greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from increased renewable fuels use.
A greenhouse gas (sometimes abbreviated GHG) is a gas that absorbs and emits radiant energy within the thermal infrared range. Greenhouse gases cause the greenhouse effect. The primary greenhouse gases in Earth''s atmosphere are water vapor, carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide and ozone.
Nov 28, 2015 · A 2014 research review and metaanalysis published in Energy Policy, "Assessing the Lifecycle Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Solar PV and Wind Energy: A Critical MetaSurvey," tackles this question for renewables. The authors were Daniel Nugent and Benjamin K. Sovacool of Vermont Law School Sovacool is also at Aarhus University in Denmark
The second (and perhaps more obvious) conclusion is that lifecycle studies of greenhouse gas emissions associated with the nuclear fuel cycle need to become more accurate, transparent, accountable, and comprehensive. Thirtynine percent of lifecycle studies
