Carbon Footprint of Fuel Consumption API

Carbon Footprint of Fuel Consumption API

This computes the emissions from stationary combustion fuels which are burnt in a fixed unit or asset owned or controlled by the reporting organization, and usually reported as a Scope 1 direct emission. The source of data and methodology of emission factor calculation are from UK government's GHG conversion factors for company reporting and Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE)'s data of 2022 from New Zealand.

CarbonSutra API calculates the carbon emission footprint for your organization. Hosted at ZYLA, it can be instantly tested by yourself at no cost.

The API computes the emissions from primary fuel sources combusted at a site or in an asset owned or controlled by the reporting organization. The emission factors for commercial, industrial, transport and residential usage of fuel are used for accurate estimations.​​ You will then need to specify the fuel name. The API calculates emissions for regular and premium petrol, Bituminous coal, Sub-Bituminous, Lignite and normal coal. In addition, you can estimate for Diesel, LPG, Heavy and Light Fuel Oil, Natural Gas, Kerosene or Aviation Gas. Lastly, enter the amount of fuel that is consumed. The API will return the emission value of carbon dioxide equivalent in kilograms, metric tonnes and pounds.

 

API Documentation

Endpoints


The following fields are ingested:

FUEL USAGE
Mandatory. The usage of the fuel can be entered as either "commercial", "industrial", "transport" or "residential". If left blank, it will default to "commercial". Note that "commercial" is to be used for fuels used at sites or properties where commercial activities take place. "industrial" is used when combustion takes place at sites where industrial processes occur or within engines that support industrial activities. "residential" can be applied for fuel used primarily at residential properties. "transport" in this category is for the fuel used in an engine to move a vehicle.

FUEL NAME
Mandatory. A blank value will result in an error. Described here are the fuel types (written within quotes) are to be used. They are divided into categories for ease of understanding:

- Petrol: Two types of petrol can be used under the fuel_usage category of transport. They are "Premium Petrol" and "Regular Petrol".
- Coal: Four ranks of coal can be used under any of the fuel_usage categories of commercial, industrial or residential. The values are: "Coal - Default", "Coal - Bituminous", "Coal - Sub-Bituminous" and "Coal - Lignite".
- Diesel: Use "Diesel" under any of the fuel_usage categories of commercial, industrial or transport.
- LPG: Use "LPG" under any of the fuel_usage categories of commercial, industrial or transport.
- Fuel Oils: Two types of fuel oils can be used under the fuel_usage categories of commercial, industrial or transport. They are "Heavy Fuel Oil" and "Light Fuel Oil".
- Natural Gas: Use "Natural Gas" under fuel_usage categories of commercial or industrial.
- Aviation Fuels: Use "Aviation fuel - Kerosene" or "Aviation gas" under fuel_usage value of transport.

FUEL VALUE
Mandatory. A blank value will result in an error. The unit of fuel_value is fixed for the categories of fuel as per the following rules:

- Petrol: "litre"
- Coal: "kg"
- Diesel: "litre"
- LPG: "kg"
- Fuel Oils: "litre"
- Natural Gas: "kWh"
- Aviation Fuels: "litre"

[1] These could be reported as Scope 3 indirect emissions if the organization does not own or control the asset (eg, a boiler) where the combustion takes place.

[2] It should be noted that the footprint calculated here does not use the full fuel-cycle emission factors and hence do not incorporate the indirect (Scope 3) emissions associated with the extraction, production and transport of the fuel.
