Life Cycle Assessment of All-Electric Aircrafts
Research Project , 2020 – 2022

There is an increasing interest in electric aviation, often with the hope of environmental improvements relative to today’s conventional, fossil-driven aircrafts. Consequently, there is a need for information about the environmental performance of electric aircrafts. As a response, the aim of this project is to conduct environmental life cycle assessment (LCA) of electric aircrafts in order to investigate their environmental impacts compared to conventional aircrafts.
