PPRC14 SPE 4.54: Environmental Life Cycle Assessment Updates and Applications

This project aims to develop additional/improved algorithms for Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) for the range of design, construction, maintenance, and rehabilitation strategies used in California. The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) needs to address additional issues required to meet Assembly Bill (AB)32 greenhouse gas emission targets and category pollutant regulations using environmental LCA following the Pavement LCA Roadmap. Questions to be addressed include design life, pavement type selection for truck lanes, continued work on analyzing Caltrans recycling strategies, regional data collection to improve California-specific LCA procedures and support environmental product declarations and LCA calculation processes
