1 2010 Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventory & Recommendations for Achieving Carbon Neutrality Faculty Coordinator: Dr. Kate Hale Wilson Faculty Support: Dr. Jim Boulter and Dr. Kim Pierson Student Researchers: Carbon Neutral Team, 2010 Student Presenters: Jason Hansen, Laura Headrick, Steph Mabrey,& Andi Krunnfusz

2 ACUPCC Presidents Climate Commitment – Achieve climate neutrality (date TBD) – Initiate tangible actions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions – Publish the climate action plan, emissions inventory, and periodic progress reports

3 What is eCO 2 ? Equivalent carbon dioxide emissions Standard measurement for global warming potential – Carbon Dioxide – Methane – Nitrous Oxide – Halocarbons – Sulfur Hexafluoride

4 2010 Total eCO 2 Emissions Total Emissions: 38,870 metric tons eCO 2 o Electricity produces 12,707 MT eCO 2

5 eCO 2 Production by Sources 2008 & 2010 (MT)

6 Chemical Subgroups Refrigerants Greenhouse Gases (GHGs) used for classroom and research purposes Disposal of hazardous waste Acetylene and Propylene used for vehicle maintenance Acetylene used by the Chemistry Department and the Art Department

7 Chemical Emissions Chemical SubgroupeCO 2 Emitted (Metric Tons) Refrigerants0.00 GHGs0.23 Hazardous Waste2.94 Acetylene (Welding)0.066 Propylene (Welding)0.036 Total3.27

8 Chemical Recommendations In order to maintain accurate information and inventory efficiency, records regarding both the purchase and use of chemicals and disposal of hazardous waste should be kept.
