Thermo-climatic cost of the domestic consumption products

Energy, 2010, vol. 35, issue 2, 1196-1199

Abstract: The thermo-climatic cost (TCC) expresses the cumulative emission of CO2 burdening all the steps of production processes connected with the fabrication of particular consumption products. The TCC of the considered product results from the consumption of semi-finished products and energy carriers. The TCC of hydrocarbon fuels contains three components: the immediate emission of CO2 resulting from the combustion of carbon, the TCC of delivery and processing and the TCC resulting from import of fuels. The TCC-component connected with import results from the TCC of the domestic products exported in order to gain the financial means for import.
