Webinar on a new carbon footprint calculation tool

5 Oct 2017

Presented by Bjarne Christensen, of Chemtechnic Consultancy, on behalf of Fertilizers Europe. Thursday 5 October 14.00 CET / 13.00 BST

The International Fertiliser Society is delighted to host this free webinar, for both Members and non-members.

It will present and discuss a new online tool for calculating the carbon footprint associated with the production of various fertiliser products.

The tool covers all activities, from raw material mining through to the final product at the factory gate, ready for dispatch.

One of the strengths of the tool is that it has already built into it a large number of regional average values for energy supplies, as well as ammonia and nitric acid plant emissions.

Users can tailor the tool to fit individual situations, by using their own values for all parameters, to reflect a specific production unit.

The value of this tool is that it allows the industry and other users to use a uniform methodology for assessing carbon footprint.

Bjarne Christensen has more than 30 years of experience within the fertiliser industry.
