LIPASTO - calculation system for transport exhaust emissions and energy use in Finland

LIPASTO is a calculation system developed and maintained by VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland Ltd. It is used to calculate transport emissions and energy consumption in Finland, covering road, rail, waterborne and air transport as well as non-road mobile machinery.

LIPASTO has been funded by Finnish Transport and Communications Agency Traficom, Ministry of Transport and Communications, Ministry of the Environment and Statistics Finland in 2013 - 2017.


As a part of developing LIPASTO, the focus is shifted towards future scenarios
of transport in Finland. Scenarios can be produced of the future vehicle fleet,
energy and fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions caused by road transport.

Transport emission inventory

The total annual emissions and energy consumption from each transport mode in Finland are calculated using separate mode-specific sub-models. Calculations are run every spring, and the results are used in national and international emission reporting.
