I am working on calculations for an LCA of an operation. The plant operator has provided me a report from an engineering firm who has measured the emissions from their stack. I am trying to estimate the amount of CO2 produced per year.
The total volume of gas emitted was 2.08Rm3 (25 degrees C, and 101.3 kPa) every two hours. The gas contains 1.30% CO2. and the plant runs 1450 hours/year.
I tried to find the density of CO2, which is 1.78g/L and multiplied volume (1,508,000 L/year) by (0.013) but I am unsure if this is correct.
The plant is using wood chips in a suspension burner and undergoing complete combustion. But in their report there is 10.40000 kg of carbon monoxide being produced.
