Tool to determine emissions from transportation of freight
  • Scope of the tool
  • Applicability: Projects with small emissions from freight transportation. For example:
    • Use of biomass for power or heat generation
    • Use of alternative raw materials in cement production
  • Transport means: Road transportation by trucks
    • Potential future extension to railways, ships and aviation
  • Objectives:
    • Ensuring consistency between methodologies
    • Offering simplified methods to determine minor emissions

Tool to determine emissions from transportation of freight
  • Emissions calculation
  • Option A: Monitoring of fuel consumption
  • Most accurate determination of emissions
  • Monitoring costs
  • Option B: Use of conservative default values
  • Simplified determination of emissions
  • Only minor monitoring requirements
  • Simple to apply if freight is transported by a third party
  • Reasonably conservative estimates => slightly less CERs

Tool to determine emissions from transportation of freight
  • Application of conservative default values
  • Default values are expressed in gram CO2 per ton-kilometre
  • PPs only need to know
    • the type and quantity of freight transported (e.g. X tons of wood chips)
    • the origin and destination / distance travelled
    • the vehicle class used (e.g. 25 – 40 tons)

Tool to determine emissions from transportation of freight
  • Key assumptions in deriving default values
  • Vehicle fuel efficiencies
  • Reasonable classification of vehicle types
  • Load on main and return trips
  • Topography (e.g. slope)
  • Traffic conditions (e.g. speed)
  • Fuel types used
  • Define reasonably conservative assumptions

Tool to determine emissions from transportation of freight
  • Key questions and next steps
  • Are comprehensive data sources on vehicle emission factors available from developing countries?
  • Which assumptions on topography, traffic conditions and vehicle loads can be regarded as reasonably conservative?
  • How can fuel consumption be monitored in practice?
  • Next steps
    • Consultancy on vehicle emission factors
    • Consideration/finalization by MP49 (May 2011)
