IPCC: 2G4 - Other Product Manufacture and Use - Other (Please specify)
Sector: Industrial : Not Specified

♦ Activity: Limestone and dolomite consumption -

♦ Greenhouse gas: Carbon dioxide ( CO2 )

► Year 1990 —

● Greenhouse gas emission estimate —

Amount: 137,745 tonnes of CO2 Emitted (137,745 tonnes CO2 Eq.)
Basis: Calculation
Calculation: [US CO2 emissions from limestone and dolomite use] * [California consumption of limestone and dolomite] / [US consumption of limestone and dolomite]

● Parameters and Constants used in calculations —

Parameter: California consumption of limestone and dolomite = 17,806,000 tonne
Reference: DATA NOT AVAILABLE - Value for this year is assumed to be equal to that of the subsequent year.
