Learn How to Calculate your Building Footprint
The United States Environmental Protection Agency has reported that the manufacturing of cement, which is a crucial component in the production of concrete, accounts for approximately 5% of the world's CO2 emissions.
Typically, buildings have 20-30 cm thick concrete floors, but when accounting for other elements, like walls and ceilings, a 40 cm floor thickness is more representative of the building's carbon footprint. Calculating this footprint is crucial in understanding the property's estimated emissions upon construction.
Carbon emissions from buildings are generated during the construction process, as well as during the production of cement and transportation of raw materials and finished products.
Our calculator provides an estimate of the carbon emissions released by your building or apartment, as well as the number of NFTCar NFTs required to offset them and achieve a zero-carbon footprint.
Building CO2 calculation
One way to estimate the cement requirements for a concrete floor is to use the following formula:
Cement (in kilograms) = volume of concrete (in cubic meters) x cement density (in kilograms/cubic meter)
Using this formula, the cement requirements for a 1m2 concrete floor with a 40cm thickness would be:
Cement (in kilograms) = (1m x 1m x 0.4m) x (2,800 kilograms/cubic meter)
Cement (in kilograms) = 1120 kilograms
To estimate the carbon emissions associated with the cement alone, you could then use the average CO2 emissions per ton of cement, which is around 900 kilograms of CO2.
Using this figure, the carbon emissions associated with 1120 kilograms of cement would be around 1000 kilograms of CO2.
1 ton cement = 900 kg/CO2
1 m2 building = 1 ton/CO2
The carbon emissions associated with a concrete floor will depend on various factors, including the type of cement used, the location of the production and construction, and the transportation of materials and waste, etc. With our calculator your will get pure estimation.
Why do we convert CO2 to fuel?
Burning fuel emits 2,3 kilograms of CO2 per liter. We are making calculations in fuel because cars use fuel, and this way, it will be super easy for everybody to understand and easy to calculate how many cars need to be scrapper and make NFTs to offset carbon.
NFTCar NFTs for Buildings
We're tackling carbon emissions with NFTs backed by high-pollution vehicles. Our process buys, scraps, and digitally certifies the removal of carbon emissions on the Binance Chain. Blockchain ensures trust and transparency.
Building CO2 calculation to NFTCars NFTs.
Our calculator estimates the carbon emissions generated during the construction of a building and converts this amount into NFT (non-fungible token) called "NFTCar NFTs". The conversion rate used is 1 NFT = 1 ton of CO2 reduction. This means that by purchasing one NFT, 1 ton of CO2 emissions are offset via buy-back and scrape high-pollution cars.
Understanding NFTCar NFTs Carbon Reduction Calculation
To calculate NFTCar NFTs for a vehicle, we analyze factors such as its age, mileage, and fuel consumption to estimate its future emissions over a 10-year period. The number of NFTs minted per car is determined by dividing the projected emissions by 1 ton of CO2 per NFT.
