Argonne GREET was developed to consider carbon intensity related to the energy and environmental effects of fuels and vehicle technologies. The DOE has supported its implementation in the fuel market, and we believe it is the best model for U.S.-based companies. Here’s why:
1. GREET rewards enterprise and ingenuity—when science gains a deeper understanding of how carbon and emissions affect the impact of fuel use for transportation; it can be incorporated into calculations.
2. GREET can accommodate variables for better land management. As an agricultural feedstock supplier implements these practices, the carbon intensity for the fuel made from its harvest is adjusted, and that value can go back to the farmer.
3. GREET’s adaptability makes it more effective in taking on the special-case variables of subsectors within transportation, including automotive, marine, rail, and aviation.
4. Because GREET can apply to vehicles themselves as well as fuels, the impact of electric vehicles, plugin hybrid cars, and virtually any other new developments in transportation technology can be accounted for.
