What is the equivalent mass of CO2


The calculation can be carried out in the same way
• for the Total emissions for one year (Your private household, your company, your organization ...)
• for the Emissions from a single event (e.g. for a flight or car trip, an event)

Please give the corresponding consumption sizes or distances - based on the last year or on the relevant event - a. All entries without decimal places and thousand points!
  Heating oil literx 2.92 kg CO2 =0 kg CO2  Heating oil (heavy / 39.5 mJ / kg) kgx 3.16 kg CO2 =0 kg CO2  natural gas m3x 2.0 kg CO2 =0 kg CO2 or kWhx 0.22 kg CO2 =0 kg CO2  Hard coal kgx 2.83 kg CO2 =0 kg CO2 or kWhx 0.34 kg CO2 =0 kg CO2  Lignite briquettes kgx 2.65 kg CO2 =0 kg CO2  District heating kWhx 0.16 kg CO2 =0 kg CO2

* Only emissions linked to direct energy consumption are recorded; indirect components (especially the operation of train stations or airports) are not taken into account here.

** Flat-rate calculation without differentiating between short and long-haul routes or aircraft types: 3.9 liters of kerosene / 100 pkm x 2.53 kg of CO2 / Liter x 2.7 (RFI) = 0.27 kg CO2(equivalent) per person-km.

* / *** In view of flights, but especially in view of Cruises on large cruise lines the best climate protection behavior is to refrain from flying or cruising. Of all possible leisure / holiday activities, a cruise is the most harmful option for the climate. Example: Trip with the Queen Mary 2: Hamburg, Southhampton, New York, ..., Hamburg, 22 days, 15 of which at sea, booking outside cabin: climate impact = around 5 tons of CO2-Emissions according to atmosfair calculator (see below). With a purely at the CO2-Absorption capacity of nature-oriented per capita calculation "should" be currently each global citizen max. 2.3 t per year Afford.

**** Exemplary average value based on the data on the CO2-Computers from atmosfair for a cruise on the AIDAstella (booking an outside cabin) are available.
