6 Some Current Co2 Offset Projects And what they say

7 1 Return trip from London to Florida 8646 miles in economy class       1950kg £14.65  2510kg £50.00  3300kg £30.00  1539kg £22.95  1200kg £16.12

8 How to Calculate Co2 Produced CO2 emission calculated from the fuel you use Fuel consumption A = in litres Specific gravity B = 0.52 for LPG, 0.74 for petrol (gas) or 0.85 for diesel Proportion of carbon in fuel C = 0.83 for LPG, 0.84 for petrol (gas) or 0.85 for diesel D = A * B * C * Carbon dioxide produced, Kg Example calculation: A=2200, B=0.74, C=0.84, D=5014 Note: The constant is for converting kg of carbon to kg of CO2. One kg of carbon combines with kg of oxygen to form kg of CO2.

9 London to Florida CO2 emission calculated Distance travelled A = Kilometres Emission rate B = kg CO2/person km C = A * B Carbon dioxide produced, C = Kg Calculation: A=13811, B=0.183, C=2527kg

10 What is the cost of this Co2       1950kg £14.65  2510kg £50.00  3300kg £30.00  1539kg £22.95  1200kg £16.12

11 The real cost   2527 kg of carbon   one native British hardwood would offset 650kg over 40 years.   So to offset for one holiday per year you would have to plant 155 trees   650 / 40 = / = 155   Total cost £1550   Land usage 1acre

12  One flight to the USA would need to plant 81,220 trees  Total of 524 acres  Cost £812,200  The flights out of Heathrow alone would cover the UK in less than 1 week

13 Can you offset Co2 ?  Yes for at least one week ?

14 Should charitable groups benefit from Co2 offset  If you don’t mind been associated with this YES ?

15 We will not be putting our website online
