To create a general LCM framework with templates and case studies to carry out harmonised sustainability assessments of both asphalt mixtures and road pavements and to transfer the knowledge with training tailored to NRAs.
To create the Pavement LCM lookup tool as a user-friendly tool to help members of NRAs to find out most appropriate datasets, methodologies and results of previous LCM studies for a specific situation.
To produce datasets of sustainability data and durability data of identified Green Asphalts for selected case studies, based on existing sustainability datasets and novel durability testing.
To provide NRAs with a methodology and recommendations for coping with the uncertainty of datasets of LCM exercises, both inputs and results, as well as roadmaps towards data harmonization at EU level.
To produce guidelines and recommendations towards using LCM results within a multicriteria sustainability assessment according to CWA 17089 and EN15804.
