My research is evaluating the lightweight vehicle’s environmental impact in the life cycle framework. Manufacturing lightweight vehicles is one of the main transportation policies in future, for improving fuel economy and energy consumption in vehicles. Life cycle assessment provides a more profound understanding of environmental impacts throughout all stages of a vehicle’s life from the manufacturing and use phases up to the end of life management, rather than focusing on the use phase alone.
This interdisciplinary research requires considering different technological, environmental, economic and policy related aspects of fuel economy in the realm of transportation.
