I thank you for producing a simple to understand number for how much CO2 is in a gallon of diesel. I wonder if you could tell me where you got the number.Waste Logic Inc is a waste and recycling consulting company. We have made some recommendations to a client that will result in fewer trips to the landfill. We know the distance to the landfill and the type of engine (combination tractor heavy duty diesel) and the payload weights. We don’t know how to translate the fewer trips and lower mileage to fewer emissions.We require a ballpark factor to use to calculate for GHG and other emissions (particulate, NOx SOx) for heavy duty diesel engines such as transport semis. Our goal is to provide our client guidance on emissions avoided by reducing waste and the reducing truck traffic to haul waste.Can you contact me please.
We offer e-newsletters that deliver targeted news and information for the entire fleet industry.
