Emission Factor

Aircraft - RF effect unknown

1.319kgCO2e/ton-mile

Emission factor summary

Emission intensity of aircraft. The primary source is EPA Emission Factors for Greenhouse Gas Inventories - Table 8 Business Travel and Employee Commuting - March 9 2018. NOTE: It is unknown if the radiative forcing (RF) effect that reflects the impact of contrails and high-altitude release of GHGs is included. NOTE: GHG protocol reports as source table Table 8 but the emission factors for CO2 CH4 and N2O are actually reported in Table 9 Upstream Transportation and Distribution and Downstream Transportation and Distribution. NOTE: This dataset has been deprecated by the source and will be removed soon.
