Lifecycle Carbon Footprint Analysis of Transportation Capital Projects

This report documents the development of GASCAP, the Greenhouse Gas Analysis System for Transportation Capital Projects. The report provides extensive detail on the assumptions underlying the emissions factors for materials, construction equipment, and preliminary work on a life-cycle maintenance module. Appendices include a review of methods for incorporating the effects of induced travel demand into a sketch planning tool, plus additional documentation for various elements of GASCAP. A user guide is also included as are a selection of case studies that were conducted to provide initial tests of the software. Further research directions to extend the usability of GASCAP are also included.
