How do we calculate CO2 emissions per flight?
In 2019, passenger aviation produced an average of 90 grams of CO2 per kilometer traveled by a single passenger, according to the International Council on Clean Transport.
Our CO2 emissions calculator determines the number of NFTs needed to offset CO2 emissions per flight using the 90g of CO2 emitted per passenger kilometer.
First, we calculate your air mileage CO2 emitted and then convert it to NFTs with one NFT equal to the removal of 1 ton of CO2.
Our calculator enables you to make informed decisions about your carbon footprint and supports carbon offset programs to help reduce your impact on the environment. Check here. If you want to test environmental footprint calculator or wanna learn more about the CO2 calculator, look here.
Why does the calculator converts CO2 to fuel burned?
The calculator converts emissions into fuel burn because it is easier to understand. For instance, one liter of petrol produces about 2.3 kg of CO2, and a 100 km air travel distance would use roughly 3.91 liters of petrol.
What makes NFTCar NFTs the best solution for the reduction of CO2 emissions per flight?
NFTCars offers a unique approach to reducing carbon emissions by transforming high-pollution vehicles into carbon credits through non-fungible tokens (NFTs).
The process of creating an NFT begins with the purchase of a high-pollution vehicle. Then we calculate car expected emissions over the next 10-year period based on the car mileage, age, and average fuel consumption. Finally, we scrape the car.
The number of NFTs minted per car is based on future emissions with 1 NFT equaling 1 ton of CO2 reduction.
This carbon reduction solution is entirely transparent and verifiable as the use of NFTs enables confirmation of the car's removal from the government registry. The VIN code, age, mileage, and fuel consumption of the car can all be verified, ensuring a 100% accurate calculation of emissions reduction.
