A web-based open emissions calculator
Many organisations and governmental agencies offer online calculators to calculate the carbon footprint of industrial activities. Furthermore, airline companies offer online tools to estimate carbon footprint and promote the purchase of carbon offsets in order to make the trip carbon neutral. This paper presents a free online emissions calculator that computes various emissions-related statistics for a given ship and operational scenario. This web tool is the first publicly available calculator for the shipping industry.
