Bicycle CO2 emission

Also the production of aliments causes the emission of GHG green house gases. So even the bicycle driver can not be spared out of a CHG emission calculation.



  Calculation basics


The energy usage of a bicycle driver is estimated for a MTB moutain bike driver with 30 kmh with 2590 kcal / 100km

A study about Eine Studie über die CHG emissions be producing aliment is the next part of the calculation.

Bicycle driving may be healthy and good for fitness, but it is only the great climate friend at people eating grain.

At many aliments is the CO2 emission in the range of an electric scooter powered by a coal power plant. At beef even more CO2 equivialent GHG emissions than at most cars.

  CO2 and mobility


How much greenhousegases GHG are emitted at what sort of mobility? What sort of mobility is possible according to climate change and other limiting factors?

The electric scooter with lead batteries is even with electric power from a lignite power plant better than a 4 stroke engine scooter. The red lantern of the worst has the 2 stroke engine scooter.


Renault Kangoo CO2 emission city traffic Renault Kangoo CO2 emission city traffic
The Kangoo is an ideal study object about the CO2 emission of different drive concepts, because it exists as gasoline, diesel, natural gas and plug-in-hybrid vehicle.

Out of town has also the ICE internal combustion engine a good efficiency. The total superiority of the electric drive system is out of town clearly smaller.


BMW 7 hydrogen BMW 7 hydrogen
Electrolysis and liquefaction of hydrogen requires much electric power. The vehicle needs about 8 times more electric power than a plug-in-hybrid of the same size.


Economize CO2 by renewable energy Economize CO2 by renewable energy
Usually, the electric power production by renewable energy is compared with the production by fossile energy and the CO2 saving is calculated by this.


Carbon dioxide values and how they are calculated
It often happens, that different CO2 emissions are published for the same process. Overview about different methods to calculate the GHG emissions of a process.
