Study on the Life Cycle Assessment and the Environmental Impact of an Electric Commuter 2005-32-0058
A compact, lightweight motorcycle is considered an environmentally-friendly vehicle. In particular, an electric commuter is generally defined as a “zero-emission” vehicle. This is, however, a one-sided view. One means of evaluating the true environmental impact of a product is the internationally recognized Life Cycle Assessment (LCA). This standard methodology enables quantitative indexes for measuring, evaluating and comparing the natural resources and energy a product uses and as well as other environmental impacts.
