How do you Calculate GHG Emissions?
Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are quantified using either direct measurement or calculation methods. The selection of a quantification method will depend on the information that is available for each source. A key component of developing a GHG inventory requires the use of emission factors. An emission factor presents the quantity of a GHG emitted to the atmosphere associated with a specific activity.
Our consultants at WKC specialise in inventory preparation using internationally recognised standards and protocols, through the use of measured data (emissions monitoring data), stoichiometry (for bespoke fuel usage) and emission factors for sources where detailed data is not available.
