GHGenius focuses on the life cycle assessment (LCA) of current and future fuels for transportation applications. It also considers a few circumstances where the fuels could be used in stationary applications rather than for transportation.
GHGenius can predict emissions for past, present and future years through to 2050 using historical data or correlations for changes in energy and process parameters with time that are stored in the model.
GHGenius can perform the LCA for specific regions (east, central or west) of Canada, the United States and Mexico or for India as a whole. For Canada, it is also possible to model many of the processes for the largest provinces. It is also possible for model regions of North America.
All of the steps in the life cycle are included in the model from raw material acquisition to end-use. The fuel cycle segments considered in the model are as follows:
