UCR Carbon Footprinting Report
Carbon Footprinting Report
for the University of Costa Rica
National Laboratories of Materials and Structural Models, University of Costa Rica (UCR)
UCR approached TEST to perform an initial environmental impact assessment of the rehabilitation of a roadway in San Carlos, Costa Rica. TEST worked with researchers at UCR to collect information and conduct a partial carbon footprinting report in line with international standards (ISO 14067).
- TEST collaborated with local researchers at UCR to collect data on local construction practices, materials, and standards.
- TEST analyzed and modeled the data collected to develop a regionalized inventory database.
- TEST evaluated the partial carbon footprint of a recent local highway rehabilitation project including material production and construction.
