Carbon dioxide emissions calculator
Find out how much of carbon dioxide you put out in the atmosphere or how many trees it takes to offset the carbon dioxide emissions per activity, like driving cars and electricity spent. By education yourself on carbon dioxide emissions you can contribute to improve our planet. This calculator can help you to understand.
- Enter the quantity in the proper field. You can convert from metric to imperial units, by using the if you need.
- The result showing how many tons of CO2 emissions each activity is responsible for is displayed in the right column.
- See the accumulated result in the bottom.

FaqS and notes on CO2 emissions
- Q: What is carbon footprint?
Is the measurement of gasses produced by men's activities and passed to the atmosphere. It is usually measured in tons.
- How these gasses are produced?
Cars, trucks, airplanes, trains, electricity generation, industries and oil plants generate gasses to name a few. Every time you turn electricity on, your demand for energy increases the consumption, of gas or oil to feed the energy generators, thus causing more emissions of CO2.
- Why CO2 emissions are bad?
CO2 emissions contribute to the global warming, besides other health problems.
- How can I contribute to reduce CO2 emissions?
Begin by knowing more about. Then take steps to cut excesses in every daily activity that contribute to CO2 emissions.
- Could you be more specific?
Yes. In your house or office, turn off lights upon leaving or electric devices not in use. Use energy-savings equipment and lights. Try to optimize your driving habits saving gas and CO2 emissions. If you run an office, replace conventional lighting by LED. You would save from 35% to 65% in your business energy bill. Don't forget about outdoor lighting, like landscaping, parking lot, wall-washers, canopies, windows.
- How the carbon footprint is calculated?
For residential, each electricity kilowatt is equal to 1.5 pound of carbon generated by coal or 0.12 pounds of carbon dioxide per cubic foot if generated by natural gas, or 22.29 pounds of CO2 emissions per gallon of oil. A small vehicle emits about 0.59 pounds of CO2 per passenger, per mile, This figure increases to 1.1 pounds of carbon for medium size vehicles. An SUV emits 1.57 pounds of CO2 per mile.
- What else we can do to reduce CO2 emissions?
Reducing unnecessary waste, preferring recycles materials, disposing glass, paper, plastic and cans in individual trash bin for recycling, avoiding waste paper. Papers are made out of trees. Planting more trees or contributing to planting more trees. A tree can offset an average of 50 pounds of carbon dioxide a year over 40 years, and about 1 ton of carbon over its lifetime. A person waste is equivalent of 1010 pounds a year. By using and allowing recycling this figure can be 50% lower.
