Methane Emissions Reductions Calculator

About this Calculator

Last Updated: June 2014

Did you ever wonder what reducing methane (CH4) emissions means in everyday terms? The methane equivalencies calculator can help you understand just that, translating abstract measurements into concrete terms you can understand, such as "equivalent to avoiding the carbon dioxide emissions of 183,000 cars annually."

This calculator may be useful in communicating your methane gas reduction strategy, reduction targets, or other initiatives aimed at reducing methane gas emissions.

Enter the volume of methane gas below to calculate methane emissions and greenhouse gas equivalencies. Please note that these estimates are approximate and should not be used for emission inventory or formal carbon footprinting exercises.

**This calculator uses an eGRID non-baseload national average emissions rate when calculating “kilowatt-hours of electricity” to “carbon dioxide equivalent.”
