Three vehicle classes: (a) compact, (b) midsize and (c) SUV,
Fifteen cities: Boston, Houston, Miami, Phoenix, Athens, Frankfurt, Kagoshima, Tokyo, Sapporo, Bangalore, Bombay, New Delhi, Sydney, Beijing, and Shanghai
Four alternative vehicle fuels: gasoline, diesel, ethanol, and methanol
Alternative refrigerants such as: HFC-152a, R- 744, Refrigerant “H”, DP-1, AC-1.
This tool was developed based on input data harmonized by the industry and it is hoped that it will become the global standard for assessing the life cycle greenhouse emissions of alternative refrigerants.
