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.

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…pact of human activity.
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…epends on the type of plane and the distance travelled . See link for calculator.
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… about ten gallons per hour, releasing close to 200 pounds of CO2. A commercial 747 typically burns about 3600 gallons of fuel per hour, liberating 34 tons of CO2.
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…bon dioxide occupies 546 cubic metres, which is a cube 27 ft by 27 ft by 27 ft.
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 …in carbon dioxide, atomic weight 44. So 44/12 is 3.667. There are other things in coal besides pure carbon, slight impurities, so in general 1 kg of coal releases about 3.6 kg of CO2.
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 w…hen the combustion process is incomplete.
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…e total CO2 we produce.
Coal is the largest contributor to the human-made increase of CO2 in the air. In terms of carbon dioxide emissions, coal is slightly ahead of petroleum and about double …that of natural gas.

An airplane produces about 2 kg of CO2 for every liter of fuel burned. The calculations for each type of aircraft are shown t the Link.
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 …m 3 of gaseous fuel.
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…ts. Coal is carbon twelve, but during oxidation it combines with diatomic oxygen (O16) to form CO2. In other words, one ton of coal releases over 2.8 tons of CO2. World wide, nearly 20 billion tons of CO2 is emitted by coal fired power plants each year, at the present time. As China and other nations continue expanding coal production, this is expected to rise a little bit in the ensuing years.
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… reducing the amount of plane usage. Simple!! However. much of the world economy relies on airtravel, we saw that with the volcanic dust cloud - millions $ were lost.
'Is carbon dioxide produced by burning' carbon rich compounds in an oxygen rich environment, I'm only going to give you one guess at this - better make it a good one!
1 tonne of coal produce 1.83 tonnes of carbon dioxide when burned 1 tonne of coal generates 2.4 MWhours 0.416 tonne of coal generates 1 MWh 0.416 tonne of co…al times 1.83 tonnes of CO2/tonne of coal = 0.7625 tonnes of CO2 are produced from 1 MWh of electricity generated by coal
