CO2 Calculations
 
  Here you can see in detail how our calculator computes your personal CO2 output values.

Flights

1 litre kerosene releases 0,00257 tons CO2

One Short Distance Return.Flight (4.000km, 8 litre kerosene/100km/person): = 0,825 tons/year
One Long Distance Rtn.Flight (20.000km, 4 litre kerosene/100km/person): = 2,056 tons/year
or
If you enter the kilometres directly, the numbers for Long distance Flights is used.
The formula is: kilometer x (4/100) x 0,00257 = tons/year

Car

1 litre petrol releases 0,00233 tons CO2, average consumption of 7 litre/100km

sometimes = 2.500 km/year = 0,41 tons/year
often = 10.000 km/year = 1,63 tons/year
always = 40.000 km/year = 6,524 tons/year
or
If you enter the kilometres directly the following formular is used:
kilometer x (7/100) x 0,00233 = tons/year

Train

1km = 0,00006 tons/Person ( = 6 kg/100km/person)

sometimes (2.500 km/year) = 0,15 tons/year
often (10.000 km/year) = 0,6 tons/year
always (40.000 km/year) = 2,4 tons/year
or
If you enter the kilometres directly the following formular is used:
kilometer x 0,00006 = tons/year

Electricity

Below average: 600 kWh = 0,381 tons/Person/year
Average: 1200 kWh = 0,762 tons/Person/year
Above average: 2400 kWh = 1,524 tons/Person/year
or
If you enter the kiloWatt hours directly the following formular is used:
KWh x 0,000635 = tons/Person/year

Heating

Oil

Below average: 500 litres = 1,31 tons/Person/year
Average: 1000 litres = 2,62 tons/Person/year
Above average: 2000 litres = 5,25 tons/Person/year
or
If you enter the litres directly the following formular is used:
Litres x 0,00262 = tons/Person/year

Gas

Below average: 500 m3 = 0,89 tons/Person/year
Average: 1000 m3 = 1,78 tons/Person/year
Above average: 2000 m3 = 3,56 tons/Person/year
or
If you enter the qubicmetres directly the following formular is used:
m3 x 0,00178 = tons/Person/year

Consumption

Food

The more local food you eat the less CO2 is produced. The more fast food meals you consume, the higher is the CO2 production.

Button 1: 0,7 tons/Person/year
Button 2: 1,5 tons/Person/year
Button 3: 3 tons/Person/year

Goods

The less products being bought, the less CO2 is produced. Especially products travelling long distances result in a higher CO2 production.

Button 1: 1 tons/Person / year
Button 2: 2,3 tons/Person / year
Button 3: 5 tons/Person / year

Conversions:

1 hectar = 10.000 m2 = 2,47 acre
1 acre = 4046,8 m2 = 0,40 hectar

1 metric ton = 1,1 short ton = 0,9 long ton
1 metric ton = 1000 kg = 2204.58 lbs

1 metric ton Carbon = 3,6 metric tons CO2 = 3600 kg CO2
1 metric ton CO2 = 0,278 metric tons Carbon

1 US$ = 9.180 Rupiah
1 Euro = 12.500 Rupiah
1 Euro = 1,36 US$
