Develop a life-cycle analysis (LCA) for a car
Develop a life-cycle analysis (LCA) for a car. First, decide on the metrics you will consider, such as CO2 emissions and energy consumption. Second, consider the LCA boundary. For example, will you or will you not consider the CO2 emissions from the mine that extracted the iron ore used to produce the steel in the car? Third, draw a diagram showing the connections among all the elements that go into producing a car and contribute to your LCA metrics calculations. Next, attempt to quantify an LCA-determined environmental impact from a car by using the Greenhouse Gases, Regulated Emissions, and Energy Use in Transportation (GREET) software available from Argonne National Laboratory at http://greet.es.anl.gov/. Finally, discuss the environmental impacts associated with a car.
