Environmental Management Systems for Transportation Maintenance Operations

Transportation is the second largest source of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions in the United States. The challenge is to reduce GHG emissions through the use of more fuel efficient vehicles, reduction of total miles driven, as well as the inclusion of planning strategies in transportation systems. Less than one percent of New Jersey's total energy consumption represents alternative fuels, so other means must be considered for reducing carbon emissions. The goal of this research project is to support the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) in reduction of GHG emissions through effective monitoring of carbon emissions produced by Operations maintenance activities. In order to accomplish this goal, NJDOT Operations must be in possession of a system for monitoring environmental standards.
