The objective of the project was the development of the calculator for environmental travel to the Hove music festival.
This calculator discusses some of the key environmental aspects of the transport of persons. The program does not deal with other important themes in an overall picture of the environmental impact and economic consequences of different travel and transport means, such as noise, land use, indirect energy consumption and costs associated with this.
The values specified are based on the "main stream" factors, i.e. values that attempt to capture average or main trend in the data that different traffic scholars at home and abroad have reached, and that Vestlandsforskning has made an assessment of.
The different categories of air emissions that database includes are:
- Carbon dioxide
- sulphur dioxide
- nitrogen oxides
The crucial result of the project has been the development of the calculator.
