This calculator does not save or otherwise record any input data, so if you leave the page and return, all inputs and results will be cleared.
Please note that the results of this calculator are subject to a high degree of uncertainty due to the nature of early-stage technology assessment. While the results may be useful for guiding research and development, they will likely be different from ultimately realized costs, emissions, and water use.
