How do we calculate the emission values for each means of transport?

The basis for calculating the emission values of the individual means of transport is the “Transport Emission Model” (Tremod), an expert model of the German Federal Environment Agency (UBA) for calculating air pollutants and climate gas emissions from motorised transport in Germany.

With Tremod, all means of passenger transport as well as energy consumption, climate gas and air pollutant emissions are considered for each year from 1960 and in scenarios up to 2050. In addition to exhaust emissions from fuel combustion, Tremod also takes into account emissions in the upstream chain to electricity or fuel supply (“well-to-wheels”). It does not take into account the emissions that occur during the production and disposal of means of transport and for the required infrastructure, such as roads. Besides CO2, greenhouse gas emissions also include methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O) and other gases. Therefore, our CO2 calculator determines not only CO2, but so-called CO2 equivalents (eq). The Global Warming Potential (GWP), i.e. the average warming effect of the atmosphere over a certain period of time (usually 100 years) is determined according to the guidelines of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) of 2007. CO2 is given a factor of 1, methane a factor of 25 and nitrous oxide a factor of 298. In this context, nitrous oxide and methane emissions are primarily not produced during the combustion of the fuel, but during the production of fuels or electricity.
