US DOE's Argonne National Lab updates biofuel & RNG feedstocks in new AFLEET Tool version

On October 10, the U.S. Department of Energy announced that Argonne National Labs has completed its GREET 2017 model and associated updates to the Alternative Fuel Life-Cycle Environmental and Economic Transportation (AFLEET) Tool.

This new version adds the ability to look at air pollutant emissions from well-to-wheel as it lets users evaluate not just “at-the-tailpipe” air pollutants, but also those arising from fuel production.

New AFLEET Tool Features include:

  • Idle Reduction Calculator 
  • Low-NOx engine option for CNG and LNG heavy-duty vehicles
  • Diesel in-use emissions multiplier sensitivity case
  • Well-to-pump air pollutants
  • Vehicle cycle petroleum use, GHGs, and air pollutants
  • Renewable diesel vehicles
  • Electric commercial trucks
  • Updated biofuel and RNG feedstocks
