carculator is an open-source, comprehensive and transparent life cycle assessment tool for passenger cars. It allows for an economic and environmental evaluation of different types of cars under several driving and energy supply scenarios. Results partly rely on the background inventory data of ecoinvent v3.6, and the implementation of impact assessment methods therein.
The code is kept as clean and accessible as possible.
Allows for fast and highly parametrized life cycle assessments.
A Python library version allows for even more specific assessments.
Export inventories compatible with Brightway2.
Relies on recent published inventories to model energy chains.
