How to Calculate Co2 Produced

CO2 emission calculated from the fuel you use

Fuel consumptionA = in litres

Specific gravityB = 0.52 for LPG, 0.74 for petrol (gas) or 0.85 for diesel

Proportion of carbon in fuelC = 0.83 for LPG, 0.84 for petrol (gas) or 0.85 for diesel

D = A * B * C * 3.6667

Carbon dioxide produced, Kg

Example calculation: A=2200, B=0.74, C=0.84, D=5014

Note: The constant 3.6667 is for converting kg of carbon to kg of CO2. One kg of carbon combines with 2.6667kg of oxygen to form 3.6667kg of CO2.

London to Florida

CO2 emission calculated

Distance travelledA = Kilometres

Emission rateB = kg CO2/person km

C = A * B

Carbon dioxide produced, C = Kg

Calculation: A=13811, B=0.183, C=2527kg

What is the cost of this Co2
The real cost
• 2527 kg of carbon
• one native British hardwood would offset 650kg over 40 years.
• So to offset for one holiday per year you would have to plant 155 trees
• 650 / 40 = 16.25 2527 / 16.25 = 155
• Total cost £1550
• Land usage 1acre
One flight to the USA would need to plant 81,220 trees
• Total of 524 acres
• Cost £812,200
• The flights out of Heathrow alone would cover the UK in less than 1 week
Can you offset Co2 ?

?

• Yes for at least one week
Should charitable groups benefit from Co2 offset

?

• If you don’t mind been associated with this YES
