  Lowering Building Emissions: Strategies and Best Practices

Cement production, a crucial component in concrete, contributes to approximately 5% of worldwide carbon dioxide emissions, as per the US Environmental Protection Agency.

Typically, building floors made of concrete are 20-30 cm thick, but when accounting for other elements like walls and ceilings, the total carbon emissions may correspond to a 40cm floor. This simplified approach makes it easier to estimate your building's carbon footprint and understand the emissions released during construction.


Building emissions result from multiple sources, including the production of cement and the chemical reactions that occur during its manufacturing, as well as transportation emissions associated with raw materials and finished products. These emissions persist after construction is complete.

Using our calculator, you can estimate the amount of emissions released by your building or apartment and determine the number of NFTCar NFTs required to offset it completely.

Building CO2 calculation

To estimate the amount of cement needed for a concrete floor, you can use a formula that involves multiplying the volume of concrete by the cement density. For example, a 40cm thick 1m2 concrete floor would require 1120 kilograms of cement using a density of 2,800 kilograms/cubic meter.

Using the average CO2 emissions per ton of cement (approximately 900 kilograms of CO2), you can estimate the carbon emissions associated with a given amount of cement. For instance, 1120 kilograms of cement would result in around 1000 kilograms of CO2 emissions. This means that a 1m2 building would produce around 1 ton of CO2 emissions.

The carbon emissions from a concrete floor can vary based on different factors, such as the type of cement, the location of production and construction, and the transportation of materials and waste. However, our calculator can provide an accurate estimation of the carbon footprint associated with your building.

Exploring the Benefits of CO2 to Fuel Conversion

Calculating carbon emissions in fuel is more accessible since cars use fuel and emit 2.3 kg of CO2 per liter. It helps determine the number of cars to scrap for NFTs to offset carbon.

The Power of NFTCar NFTs

NFTCar NFTs are non-fungible tokens that are supported by vehicles with high pollution levels. To create these NFTs, we buy a high-emitting car, scrap it, and generate a digital certificate on the Binance Chain. This certificate provides evidence of carbon emissions removal and employs blockchain technology to increase transparency and reliability.

Converting building emissions to NFTCars NFTs

Our carbon emissions calculator estimates the amount of CO2 generated during a building's construction and converts this amount into NFTs known as "NFTCar NFTs." Each NFT is equivalent to one ton of CO2 reduction, achieved through the buy-back and scrapping of high-pollution cars. By purchasing one NFT, 1 ton of CO2 emissions can be offset.

How NFTCar NFTs Calculate Carbon Reduction

To determine the number of NFTs created per car, we take into account various factors, including the car's age, mileage, and average fuel consumption. This data helps us estimate the vehicle's future emissions over a 10-year period. The amount of emissions reduced is then calculated by dividing the car's projected emissions for the next 10 years by 1 ton of CO2 per NFT.
