Special Area No. 2 - CO₂ Eq. Emissions
Special Area No. 2 had 5.8 million tonnes of CO₂ eq. emissions from producers emitting over 50 kt in 2017, increasing 14.6% from 5.0 million tonnes in 2016. The N²O equivalent segment had the lowest increase over last year, increasing 12.8% to 25,513 tonnes.
Definition: Amount of CO₂ equivalent emissions from facilities emitting over 10kt, as required by Canada's Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program (GHGRP). CO₂ equivalent is a term for describing different green house gases (like methane, nitrous oxide, HFCs, etc.) in a common unit. The CO₂ equivalent would signify the amount of CO₂ required to have a equivalent greenhouse effect.
