Carbon Footprint

.

It is generally accepted that organic materials in landfill will decompose as follows:

50% directly into CO2 and 50% into methane CH4

Greenhouse Gas (GHG) affect is as follows:
500 lbs. raw food waste (@ 80% water) = 100 lbs. organic material

100 lbs. x 50% CO2  = 50 lbs. CO2

100 lbs. x 50% CH4  = 50 lbs. x 23 (more damaging than CO2) Total CO2 equivalent  =1,200 lbs.

1,200 lbs. CO2 equivalent  = .55 MT CO2 equivalent  per day

WE NEED TO REDUCE ATMOSPHERIC CO2 NOW!
