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 does a car produce?

A gallon of gasoline releases 14 lbs of CO2 when burned. A car that averages 20 miles per gallon and is driven a typical 15,000 miles per year will burn 750 gallons, emitting

# 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

# Which produces more energy the formation of carbon monoxide or carbon dioxide by burning coal?

The formation of carbon dioxide. Burning coal that releases only carbon dioxide means the coal is completely burnt and more energy is produced. Carbon monoxide is released

# How much carbon dioxide is produced by the ocean?

The oceans are regarded as carbon dioxide sinks, not sources. This means they remove carbon dioxide, not produce it. Carbon dioxide dissolves from the air into ocean water. On

# 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
