WorldAutoSteel has released Version 5.0 of the UCSB Automotive Energy & GHG Model (“UCSB Model”) today. The model, developed by the University of California at Santa Barbara, helps users to analyze the environmental impact of new vehicle design using Life Cycle Assessment (LCA). This helps automakers evaluate emission savings over the full life cycle of a vehicle, and is part of the steel sector’s contribution to a sustainable and competitive automotive industry. With this update, the UCSB Model provides full vehicle LCA capabilities.
Life cycle assessment experts (LCA) and automotive engineers interested in the full life cycle of a vehicle can download Version 5.0 of the UCSB Model free-of-charge on our website here.
