The emission factor for fuels shows how much emissions are caused by burning the fuel. Carbon dioxide emissions occur when the carbon in the fuel combines with oxygen during combustion. Most global greenhouse gas emissions are caused by burning fossil fuels (coal, natural gas and oil)

On the platform, you can use our standard-based carbon footprint calculators and use this emission factor as input for emission calculations. As a paying customer, you get access to an extensive emissions database with more comprehensive features.

In addition to the information presented here, you can find more information about the type of emission (Fossil / Biogenic / Stored carbon /Carbon neutral), the life cycle stages included in the emission factor (Cradle-to-Grave / Cradle-to-Gate / Production phase / Use phase) and reliability of the emission factor (e.g. whether the emission factor has been verified by an independent third party) and other relevant information needed for the emission calculation. You can also perform unit conversions, add your own emission factors to the system and make your own list of your most used emission factors.
