CARBON DIOXIDE EMISSIONS COEFFICIENTS BY FUELadmin
In the face of the trend of green industry development that is gradually becoming popular in countries in Europe, businesses in Asia are also making efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in production and business. However, in the process of moving towards a “carbon-reducing” industry, businesses need to have a clear understanding of the CO2 emission factors in order to make decisions about using fuel in accordance with the production situation.
|CARBON DIOXIDE EMISSIONS COEFFICIENTS BY FUEL|
(Used in industrial production, serving production)
|FUEL TYPE||Ib/mmBTU |
(Pounds/Per Million Btu)
(Kilograms/Per Million Btu)
|Diesel and Home Heating Fuel (Distillate Fuel Oil)||163.45||74.14|
|Coal (All types)||211.06||95.74|
|Residual Heating Fuel |
Data table based on EIA report (EIA – Energy Information Administration)
– Pounds: is a unit of mass used in British imperial and United States customary systems of measurement. (The international standard symbol for the avoirdupois pound is lb; an alternative symbol is lbm). 1 pound = 0.45359237 kg and 1 pound = 453,6 gram.
– Per Million Btu: 1 million BTU. BTU (British Therm Unit) is a unit of heat.
Based on the above table, we can be seen that:
– The Coal (All types) and the Residual Heating Fuel are the fuels with the highest CO2 emission coefficients.
– In contrast to Natural Gas (CNG, LNG, ..), Propane is a fuel with a lower carbon dioxide emission factor and is more environmentally friendly.
Depending on the needs of use as well as the development trend of the market, businesses can choose the type of fuel that is suitable for their purposes, but the structure of the energy industry is gradually changing day by day before the development of the energy industry. With the strong development of the green industry, in the future, natural gas is predicted to become an alternative energy source globally.
