Vehicle Life Cycle Model

At Garrett, we understand that CO2 emissions reduction from vehicles need to be part of any plan in Europe to achieve the 2050 net zero target. However, while European regulators have been focusing on vehicle tailpipe emissions, also known as tank-to-wheel (TTW) efficiency, the real impact on global warming and climate change for our planet truly depends on the vehicle’s total emissions over its life cycle, spanning vehicle manufacturing and use to recycling and disposal. Such analysis exists and is called Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), covering well-to-wheel (WTW) emissions.
