This paper proposes a method to estimate traffic fuel consumption and emissions at urban scale. The aim is threefold: (i) to propose a methodology which, pursuing a disaggregate approach, integrate transportation models with fuel consumption and emission models; (ii) to apply the methodology to the CEP of Salerno (Italy); (iii) to carry out a sensitivity analysis with respect to different input variables (vehicle types, modal split, vehicle flow density) allowing to evaluate the effects of travel demand management strategies. The methodology is based on consolidated methods/models of transportation system analysis, and it pursues the European approach based on Computer Programme to Calculate Emissions from Road Transport (COPERT) for estimating fuel consumptions and emissions.
