Environmental Analysis of Waste-to-Fuel Projects: Well-to-Wheel

View Slides

This presentation discusses the concept of "well-to-wheel" or the process of fuel production and purification, transport of fuel to the vehicle, and the corresponding analysis. It digs into the environmental effects of this process, such as air pollution, climate impacts, and community perception.

Mitigation progress cannot be measured without estimating greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Capturing project and city emission estimates has yet to be fully mainstreamed as part of Asian Development Bank’s urban operations. Despite the challenges, there is a strong case for moving toward establishing and maintaining GHG inventories for cities in the long-term.
