In 2020, conduct a life cycle assessment (LCA) of fuel systems.
Terms of the action or commitment
The challenge is to obtain a dynamic mapping, through a parametric model, of the levers that can be used to reduce environmental impact (supply of bio-sourced and recycled materials, transport distances, energy efficiency of production tools, supply of green energy, use and end of life/recycling).
2022 follow-up of the action
The project enabled the construction of a parametric model for calculating the carbon footprint of a fuel system. The life cycle analysis was carried out on 4 products and the results were shared internally and communicated to the customers concerned.
The calculator can be configured according to 4 criteria and allows us to discuss with our customers possible strategies for reducing the carbon footprint and recycling fuel systems.
The advantage of the tool is to allow a quick estimate of the carbon footprint, to compare different solutions. It is a flexible and free tool that allows easy and quick handling and contributes to the eco-design of products.
The tool was developed with a working group including different fuel tank manufacturers, which allows consistency of the data presented to manufacturers.
