Insights on CO2 savings calculations methodology
The calculations above are based on assumptions, to give a broad estimate of CO2 savings using AELER containers.
Some of our assumptions include:
- choice of one ship type only
- average ship fuel emission factor of 3.4
- no consideration of truck or train transit
- insulation material assumed to be Polyurethane only
In order to get a full calculation that will represent your real operational situation, with less assumptions, please contact us.
The computations and data used in this calculator have been previously validated by three independent Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) and sustainability experts:
- Dr Petros Dimitriou Christidis, expert in environmental, sustainability technology and LCA
- Dr Jeremy Rodrigues, project manager at dss+, senior consultant specialized in LCA
- An LCA expert from HES-SO / EPFL
Besides, AELER being part of the Smart Freight Center, the CO2 savings calculations are currently being validated against the GLEC-Framework.
