Railroad Energy Intensity and Criteria Air Pollutant Emissions

A tiered emission factors table was developed by Argonne National Laboratory to populate its Greenhouse Gases, Regulated Emissions, and Energy Use in Transportation (GREET®) model for pollutants emissions, as well as to calculate energy intensities for passenger and freight rail applications. The rail module within the GREET® model was updated with data developed in this study to enable the evaluation of energy use, greenhouse gas emissions, and criteria air pollutant emissions by rail transport on a life-cycle basis.
