According to Energy Information Administration (EIA) research, emissions range from 2,791 lbs per short ton for lignite coal to 5,685 lbs per short ton for anthracite coal. However, the coefficients for the coals that are primarily used in electricity production, bituminous and sub-bituminous are 4,931 and 3,716 respectively. See the EIA related link for more information.

How much carbon dioxide is produced by planes?

Although aviation is a relatively small industry, it has a disproportionately large impact on the climate system. It presently accounts for 4-9% of the total climate change im

How much Carbon dioxide produced by planes?

Air travel is a very energy-intensive activity. On average it generates about 200 grams of carbon dioxide (CO2) (7 ounces) per person, per air kilometre travelled. It also d

How much carbon dioxide does a plane produce?

A flat, geometric plane produces no CO2. However, most aircraft burn carbon based fuel, and the combustion of this fuel releases carbon dioxide. A small Piper Club will burn

How much is a ton of carbon dioxide?

Carbon dioxide is usually measured in kilogrammes or tons. But at standard temperature and pressure, one cubic metre of carbon dioxide weighs 1.83 kilogrammes. So a ton of car

How much carbon dioxide is released when burning a kilo of coal?

Burning one kilo of carbon releases about 3.6 kilos of carbon dioxide. Carbon has an atomic weight of 12. Oxygen has an atomic weight of 16. The oxidation of carbon results

How much carbon dioxide do airplanes produce?

Answer They use jet fuel which creates carbon dioxide and other pollutants. Man produces between 3 and 6% of all CO2 produced. Planes make up a very very small portion of th

What does it take to produce one ton of carbon dioxide emissions?

You get a tonne of carbon dioxide for every 300 kg. or so of carbon you burn. This could come from 400 liters of automotive fuel, 300 kg. of coal, 500 kg. of dry wood or 1000

How much carbon dioxide released by coal power plants?

About 7 billion tons of coal is presently mined each year. While some of this is used to make coke for steel blast furnaces, most of it ends up being burned in coal power plan

What can you do about planes producing to much carbon dioxide?

Many planes today are as efficient as they can be, but they are not "green" by any value. There is only one sensible way to reduce CO2 from air travel/freight and that is by
