Green Trucks Toolkit

The Green Trucks Toolkit (GTT) was developed by Clean Air Asia under the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) Core Environment Program Biodiversity Conservation Corridors Initiative (CEP-BCI).

This toolkit is a simple, easy-to-use excel-based model with the aim of assisting truck fleet managers in estimating the baseline impacts of their fleets as well as in evaluating the impacts of appplying different technologies and strategies that improve vehicle efficiencies and/or reduce pollution. It is mainly based on the UNEP-TNT Clean Fleet Management Toolkit.

The toolkit enables the users to estimate the following vehicle-related emissions from their fleet:
• Carbon dioxide
• Particulate matter
• Nitrogen oxides
• Carbon monoxide
• Volatile organic compounds
• Sulfur oxides
• Lead (for gasoline trucks)

Aside from the emissions, fleet efficiency baseline indicators such as amount of emissions per ton-km and amount of fuel consumed per ton-km are also outputs provided by the tool.

The toolkitl also allows the evaluation of scenarios involving the employment of technologies and strategies that are geared towards improving truck fuel efficiency and reducing pollution:
• eco-driving
• improved maintenance
• aerodyamic styling
• low rolling resistance tires
• idling reduction
• reduction of sulfur in diesel and gasoline
• reduction/elimination of lead in gasoline
• emission control devices
• replacement of diesel and gasoline trucks with LPG/CNG trucks
