Life Cycle Analysis – GREET® model

Measuring environmental impact

The GREET® (Greenhouse gases, Regulated Emissions, and Energy used in Technologies) model evaluates the environmental impacts of advanced vehicle technologies, alternative/conventional transportation fuels, and new bio-derived chemicals. 

GREET can estimate:

  • Energy consumption 
  • Water consumption
  • Greenhouse gas emissions
  • Criteria air pollutant emissions 

GREET helps users understand the environmental impact of a fuel or bioproduct from a supply chain perspective — from feedstock production all the way to the final product. The results of the life-cycle analysis modeling are used to identify the environmental benefits of bio-derived chemicals and fuels, as well as to help identify primary drivers and technical barriers along the supply chain.
