Calculator for the CO2 Emissions of Combustion
The carbon dioxide emissions from burning fossil fuels can be calculated here. The emission for a certain value can be determined in kilograms, liters or kilowatt hours, or how much is burned for a certain emission.
Please enter one value, the amount of fuel in kilograms, liters or kilowatt hours or the amount of CO2 emitted in kilograms. The other value is calculated by pressing the corresponding ↔ key. The calculated values are average values.
Example: Burning one kilogram of lignite produces about one kilogram of carbon dioxide, while burning one kilogram of natural gas produces 2.79 kilograms of carbon dioxide. However, if you calculate the generation per energy generated, 380 grams of CO2 are released for one kilowatt hour from lignite and 200 grams for one kilowatt hour of natural gas. The reason for this is that lignite contains a very high proportion of water, which does not burn.
The mass of CO2 produced is usually greater than the mass of the starting material. The reason for this is that a carbon atom reacts with two oxygen atoms from the air (oxidation). And an oxygen atom is about one third heavier than a carbon atom.
For renewable energies such as photovoltaics, hydroelectric power and wind power, the CO2 production during operation is zero, as is the case with the combustion of hydrogen.
Here you can convert metric units into customary and imperial units.
