8. How to Calculate Co2 Produced CO2 emission calculated from the fuel you use Fuel consumptionA = in litres Specific gravityB = 0.52 for LPG, 0.74 for petrol (gas) or 0.85 for diesel Proportion of carbon in fuelC = 0.83 for LPG, 0.84 for petrol (gas) or 0.85 for diesel D = A * B * C * 3.6667 Carbon dioxide produced, Kg Example calculation: A=2200, B=0.74, C=0.84, D=5014 Note: The constant 3.6667 is for converting kg of carbon to kg of CO2. One kg of carbon combines with 2.6667kg of oxygen to form 3.6667kg of CO2.

9. London to Florida CO2 emission calculated Distance travelledA = Kilometres Emission rateB = kg CO2/person km C = A * B Carbon dioxide produced, C = Kg Calculation: A=13811, B=0.183, C=2527kg

11. The real cost • 2527 kg of carbon • one native British hardwood would offset 650kg over 40 years. • So to offset for one holiday per year you would have to plant 155 trees • 650 / 40 = 16.25 2527 / 16.25 = 155 • Total cost £1550 • Land usage 1acre

12. One flight to the USA would need to plant 81,220 trees • Total of 524 acres • Cost £812,200 • The flights out of Heathrow alone would cover the UK in less than 1 week

13. Can you offset Co2 ? ? • Yes for at least one week

14. Should charitable groups benefit from Co2 offset ? • If you don’t mind been associated with this YES
