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.
This policy brief summarizes findings from a white paper that assembles the most prominent proposals to address aspects of securing or reforming state and federal transportation funding and reviews them in the context of sustainable transportation.
This policy brief summarizes findings and provides policy implications from research that analyzed life cycle assessment literature to understand whether alkali-activated materials can achieve the same mechanical performance as Portland cement with lower CO2 emissions.
To increase the adoption of Alkali activated materials concrete for civil applications such as pavements, it is fundamental to analyze the existing literature to clarify the link between environmental and mechanical performance, identifying opportunities for applications that are tailored to the local availability of raw material, reducing transport environmental costs.
This report discusses the project which aimed to develop an analytical framework to model urban last mile delivery, building upon the previously developed econometric behavior models that capture e-commerce demand.
