Sharing the calculation methodology of the Cleanest Dirt Bike Ever

 



Following the last announcement of the Open Source project between Vattenfall & CAKE, with the aim to commercialize the first fossil free vehicle to be launched 2025, CAKE releases the calculation methodology (Life Cycle Assessment) behind the project.  



The ambition is to minimize the CO2 footprint to as close as zero as possible without offsetting. The process will combine success with disappointments that will be shared transparently with the aim to inspire and accelerate the obligation and transition of the industry towards zero emissions.




Sharing the methodology to inspire stakeholders  



Since 2021, the project team has taken the complete Kalk OR apart and analyzed each component to conclude the total production footprint of 1,186 kg CO2e as a starting point.



The methodology behind calculating this footprint by performing a life cycle assessment (LCA) has been openly released to the public on the CAKE website. The system boundary for this Cleanest Dirt Bike Ever project, which defines what is taken into consideration and what is excluded, includes every single part and process of the bike. It also restricts all offsetting.





Helping general public to grasp environmental impact



So how much is 1,186 kg CO2e? Buzz words like carbon footprint and environmental impact when talking about our bike, and products in general, may be abstract for the general public to understand. To bridge this gap, CAKE and Vattenfall launched THE CUBE to visualize the equivalent volume of carbon dioxide, 1,186 kg CO2e, that the CAKE Kalk bike emits during production, and thus what the project aims to reduce to zero.



In addition to visualizing the CO2 footprint with THE CUBE, the partners of the Cleanest Dirt Bike Ever are taking the next step to explain the calculation methodology behind the numbers; Life cycle assessment (LCA). As only a handful of stakeholders know what an LCA is, and how to perform one, the published article takes the reader step-by-step through the process of performing an LCA and its results.



Learn more about the steps behind an LCA and how the project partners calculated the footprint of the Cleanest Dirt Bike Ever.





About the project




Going fossil free isn’t just about how things are powered, it’s about removing the carbon from how things are sourced, made, transported and assembled. So while electric vehicles are a good start, they don’t take us far enough.



Solving the greatest challenge in human history demands that we rethink conventional ways of doing things. It demands that we break silos and collaborate far beyond industry borders. And it demands we do it today, because the future can’t wait. The project essentially combines CAKE's expertise in innovation and engineering with Vattenfall’s expertise in electrifying industries and decarbonizing entire production chains.



Together we will reinvent the wheel, the suspension, the saddle and every other part of the CAKE Kalk OR with the aim of making the first truly fossil free vehicle. We’ll reduce its current estimated carbon weight of 1,186 kg CO2e to an absolute minimum by 2025 to make the cleanest dirt bike ever. And we’ll share every single setback, breakthrough and finding along the way to inspire others.
