I am using the transport, freight, lorry 7.5 - 16 metric ton, EURO6 from ecoinvent as my transport process. In the database it is mentioned that truck consumes 0.047 kg/ton.km diesel fuel. I have calculated one example truck that carries 1 ton waste by the distance of 100 km and the result is 4.7 kg/100 km.Which is similar fuel consumption of a small passenger car. From the Volvo truck's EURO6 document, the consumption of the smallest truck is 20 liters/100 km when empty and 30 liters/100 km when fully loaded.
I have also checked all the references mentioned in the ecoinvent document about the fuel consumption of the transport. But I did not find how the database fuel consumption has been calculated.
I want to become clear how the number 0.047 kg/ton.km diesel fuel in this database has been calculated?
