White Paper on Alternate Strategies for Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions: A Life Cycle Approach Using a Supply Curve

(2019)

The purpose of this white paper is to provide Caltrans with a methodology that uses LCA and LCCA analyses to create a “supply curve” that ranks the different strategies/actions that can be taken to reduce GHG emissions and lessen any other environmental impacts that affect ecosystems and human health. For Caltrans to implement the proposed methodology, the process must be validated and assessed using currently available actions. This white paper presents the methodology and demonstrates its initial use in quantifying and ranking several potential strategies.
