IPCC: 1A1b - Fuel Combustion Activities - Energy Industries - Petroleum Refining
Sector: Industrial : Petroleum Refining and Hydrogen Production

♦ Activity: Fuel combustion - Associated gas

♦ Greenhouse gas: Carbon dioxide ( CO2 )

► Year 2015 —

● Greenhouse gas emission estimate —

Amount: 6,221 tonnes of CO2 Emitted (6,221 tonnes CO2 Eq.)
Basis: Calculation
Calculation: [Fuel combustion] * [Heat content] * [Fuel CO2 emission]
