Example: the impact of vehicle CO 2 emissions 1/2 What were the annual CO 2 emissions from gasoline burning cars in the United States in 2000? 42 gallons in one barrel of crude oil yields 19.2 gallons of gasoline Or about 46% of a barrel of oil is converted to gasoline From Table 2.3 of Shepard and Shepard, in 2000 the U.S. used 897.4 MTOE of oil MTOE = million tonnes of oil equivalent MTOE is considered a unit of energy and mass! 1 TOE = 42 GJ BOE = barrel of oil equivalent Products Made from a Barrel of Crude Oil, 2007 (Gallons) Note: A 42-U.S. gallon barrel of crude oil yields between 44 and 45 gallons of petroleum products. These totals are greater than 42 gallons due to processing gain. Source: U.S. Energy Information Administration

We estimated ___ billion metric tonnes of CO 2 per year. Recall: 1 metric ton = 1 tonne = 1000 kg 1 short ton = 2000 lbs 1 long ton = 2240 lbs How accurate was our estimate for CO 2 emissions from vehicles?

Where we are headed… Next steps are to understand the how fuel properties vary and then we can connect fuel use to CO 2 emissions. The relationships between fuel properties and air toxic emissions are more complex, and we will use empirical relationships for this class.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
