Description:
Abstract:
These energy consumption data were multiplied by their respective carbon dioxide emission factors, which are called carbon content coefficients by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). These factors quantify the mass of oxidized carbon per unit of energy released from a fuel. In the U.S.A., they are typically expressed in units of teragrams of carbon (Tg-C = 1012 grams of carbon) per quadrillion British thermal units (quadrillion Btu = 1015 Btu, or "quad"), and are highest for coal and lowest for natural gas. Results are given in teragrams of carbon emitted. Data are available for over 30 different petroleum products, with the exact breakdown varying somewhat from year to year. These products have been treated individually until the final step of the estimation, at which time CO2 emissions were summed and attributed to liquid petroleum products.
