Documentation of California's Greenhouse Gas Inventory (13th Edition - Last updated on 10-15-2020)

♦ Category: Industrial Processes and Product Use

IPCC: 2G4 - Other Product Manufacture and Use - CO2, Limestone or Soda Ash consumption
Sector: Industrial : Not Specified

♦ Activity: Limestone and dolomite consumption -

♦ Greenhouse gas: Carbon dioxide ( CO2 )

► Year 2018 —

● Greenhouse gas emission estimate —

Amount: 196,397 tonnes of CO2 Emitted (196,397 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]

Parameter: California consumption of limestone and dolomite = 16,668,700 tonne
Reference: DATA NOT AVAILABLE - Value for this year is assumed to be equal to that of the previous year.
Parameter: US CO2 emissions from limestone and dolomite use = 10,828,000,000,000 g (i.e. 10.83 million tonnes)
Reference: DATA NOT AVAILABLE - Value for this year is assumed to be equal to that of the previous year.
Parameter: US consumption of limestone and dolomite = 919,000,000 tonne
Reference: DATA NOT AVAILABLE - Value for this year is assumed to be equal to that of the previous year.
