EcoTransIT operates on a sound scientific basis with data that is accepted Europe-wide. The Institute for Energy and Environmental Research (ifeu), Heidelberg, is in charge of the scientific issues such as the environmental data. Ifeu used the Handbook on Emission Factors for Road Transport (HBEFA), data from the Assessment and Reliability of Transport Emission Models and Inventory Systems (ARTEMIS), the ecoinvent database and others. The German Federal Environmental Agency (Umweltbundesamt, UBA) provided data for the environmental compatibility of various transport modes car, a truck, rail, inland waterways and aircraft. The technical implementation and development of the relevant software were carried out by RMCon.
