2019 Emissions Coefficients

2019 Emissions Coefficients

The attached file is the current emissions coefficients modeled by Eco Invent. These coefficients reflect an Ontario energy grid mix, and transport distances used for the city of Toronto. These data points will be updated on a consistent basis to reflect new information in the Eco Invent data base. If you would like a customized copy of emissions coefficients that reflect energy grid mixes or transport distances for your particular operations, please contact lakhanc@yorku.ca
