The GREET team at the Systems Assessment Center of Argonne National Laboratory is pleased to announce release of the first GREET Marine Module.

The Systems Assessment Center at Argonne National Laboratory has developed an interactive standalone marine module (GREET Marine Module) to have a consistent marine fuels’ life-cycle analysis platform with the most up-to-date datasets. It is intended to evaluate the environmental impact of various marine fuel production pathways including both fossil- and bio-derived marine fuels. For easy access, this module uses Microsoft Excel with Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) to enable an interactive user interface.

In this first release, we have added the background datasets for marine fuels with the most up-to-date GREET 2022 excel module. We made the GREET Marine Module dynamic, which interacts with the GREET fuel cycle model (GREET1) by directly reading upstream life cycle energy uses and emissions for key inputs to various stages in various marine fuel production pathways. The dynamic version enables changing the default input parameters of the GREET1 model to user defined inputs. The connection to GREET1 model is automatic and it works in the background to show the results in the interactive GREET Marine Module excel file.

For detailed instructions on how to use the module, please refer to the GREET Marine Module Introduction.
