ALCAS Member eTool to Provide LCA software for European Infrastructure
Australian firm eTool has been engaged by Europe’s largest infrastructure project, HS2 to provide life cycle design software.
The HS2 project is designed to increase capacity on UK’s railways and improve connectivity between eight out of ten of Britain’s biggest cities. It will run between London and Birmingham from 2026, extend to Crewe by 2027 and then link to Manchester and Leeds from 2033 with HS2 trains continuing to cities including Newcastle, Edinburgh and Glasgow.
To measure, reduce and report on carbon emissions, materials efficiency and wider embedded environment impacts, HS2 have adopted an LCA approach, looking at impacts from extraction of raw materials through to processing, transport, use and disposal.
eTool was awarded the contract after a thorough tendering process.
