"HERMES CO2" spreadsheet tool assesses the amount of carbon dioxide CO2 emissions generated during the life of an asphalt pavement considering production stage, construction stage and use stage. The Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) approach is implemented. “HERMES CO2” maximizes openness and transparency of the analysis and the interaction allowed with the user. Furthermore, "HERMES CO2" comprises inputs that are seldom touched in other tools by including use stage. The work is part of the “HERMES” international research project.
