Abstract

In road construction, large quantities of raw materials are extracted and transported duringseveral stages of its life cycle. Consequently, processing and preparation of raw materials fordifferent purposes inevitably result in considerable amount of energy use and emissions of airpollutants. The Swedish Transportation Administration has an ambition to minimizeenvironmental impacts from transport infrastructure projects by, for instance, reducing the energyuse and emissions of greenhouse gases. This can be achieved by implementing specific strategiesand techniques during various stages throughout the life cycle of the project. In this paper aframework is proposed to manage the energy use and greenhouse gases emissions from rawmaterials extraction processes in road construction projects. A prototype is developed based onthe framework and demonstrated in a small case study.
