This research brief summarizes the associated project, which developed a methodology that combines urban metabolism and life cycle assessment to examine the life cycle impacts of hardscapes at the urban scale rather than at the product or project scale.
The University of California, Davis and the California Energy Commission held a series of three Emerging Technologies Workshops to identify environmentally and economically promising alternative fuel and vehicle emerging technologies.
This brief summarizes findings from researchers at the University of Southern California who developed an optimization-based vehicle scheduling model that allows for a “street exchange” in which empty containers can go directly from importers to exporters without returning to the port.
This research brief summarizes findings from a study in which researchers investigated the use of higher percentages of reclaimed asphalt pavement and asphalt roofing shingles as a partial replacement for the virgin binder in new asphalt mixes.
This research brief summarizes the findings from University of Vermont work to develop a new parameter that could serve as the basis for future hybrid vehicle emissions models: the instantaneous hybridization factor.
