Consulting firm Frontier Economics, on behalf of equipment manufacturer Liebherr Group, has shared the results of a life cycle assessment analysis related to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of construction machines equipped with various drive technologies. The study was conducted to determine how much carbon dioxide (CO2) arises from production to operation through to the recycling of the machines.

The aim of the analysis, Liebherr says, was to comprehensively calculate the emissions of the machines and their drives to recognize and assess how greenhouse gas emissions can be most effectively reduced. The overall life cycle of the machines was analyzed, from the mining and transport of the raw materials to production and the actual operation of the machine to the disposal and recycling.
