Abstract: 

Due to the Diesel scandal related to NOX exhaust emissions and the continuously increasing gap between test cycle and real life fuel consumption, the search for environmentally benign individual mobility options is being intensified. In the past recent years, life cycle inventory data on transport services have been updated and life cycle assessment (LCA) is being used to assess the environmental impacts of electric cars and mobility scenarios. The 66th LCA forum on mobility provided an overview on the state-of-art of knowledge, modelling and data in the transport sector.
