PE - 2 Project Emisions Estimator - Asphalt Pavement Association of Indiana


 



Welcome to Project Emission Estimator

Global climate change is a critical challenge that necessitates agencies involved in the development and maintenance of transportation infrastructure to identify their contributions to green house gas emissions. In response, it is important to calculate metrics to measure carbon footprints and greenhouse gas emissions, and develop standards that can be used to construct, rehabilitate and maintain transportation infrastructure.

In this study, we have measured the carbon footprint of typical Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) and Portland Cement Concrete (PCC) pavements for both the reconstruct and rehabilitation projects including pertinent Capital Preventative Maintenance Program (CPM) treatments, through direct site observation and records from construction management software.

The aim of this research is to calculate the carbon footprint for different HMA and PCC pavement sections and develop recommendations on how the established footprints can be used for the development of green construction standards. Life-cycle assessment methodologies will be used in this research.

This software has an estimator tab that you can enter your state code system to develop a Project Report.
