The calculation of greenhouse gas emissions of a family and projections for emission reduction

Mehmet Mustafa Yatarkalkmaz [1] , Mustafa Bahadır Özdemir [2]


The article shows how to calculate greenhouse gas emissions of a family and emission reduction activities according to IPCC documents and ISO 14064-1 standards. In this study, direct and energy indirect emissions in 2017 are calculated. Then, within the scope of emission reduction activities, PV system installation, boiler exchange and led conversion are projected. As a result of the calculations, the total emission of the family is found to be 5,331 tons CO2-Eq. 84.1% of the total emission is direct emissions that is 4,484 tons CO2-Eq. The remaining 15.9% is energy indirect emission that is 0,847 tons CO2-Eq. Besides, 0,407 tons CO2-Eq from direct emission and 0,464 tons CO2-Eq from energy indirect emission are reduced. With the help of simple projections, we can reduce direct emissions by approximately 8%, while energy indirect emissions by about 55%. It is thought that the study will guide the calculation of greenhouse gas emissions and will also help those who wish to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
