The category /transport/lgv/generic/ghgp/heavyduty/other/biomassfuel contains data sourced from the World Resources Institute GHG_Protocol for calculating emissions associated with heavy duty biofuel trucks in non-US or UK contexts. This allows users to calculate their biofuel CO2 emissions separately from the fossil fuel CO2 emissions calculations in the Other regional heavy duty truck category.
To use this category, specify the vehicle type using the vehicleType drill-down, from ''rigid'' or ''articulated''. Then use the fuelType drill-down to select the type of fuel being used. At present the only option for biomass fuels in this category is 'ethanol'.
The distance is then set as a profile item by the user.
The algorithm returns the kg CO2 emitted according to the vehicle, fuel type and distance specified. This CO2 value covers biomass emissions only.
