Carbon Content Coefficient (Combusted Fossil Fuels)

Carbon Content Coefficient (Combusted Fossil Fuels)

The estimated carbon content of combusted fossil fuels representing the maximum potential emissions to the atmosphere if all carbon in the fuel were to be oxidized during combustion.  [SourceAnnex 2 Methodology and Data for Estimating CO2 Emissions from Fossil Fuel Combustion, Inventory of U.S. Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Sinks: 1990-2010, 2012; U.S. Environmental Protection Agency; p.A-56.]
