Question 83 - The United States of America Energy Information Administration reports the following emissions in million metric tons of carbon dioxide in the world for year 2012 : Natural gas : 6799, petroleum : 11695, coal : 13787. Coal-fired electric power generation emits around 2000 pounds of carbon dioxide for every megawatt hour generated, which is almost double the carbon dioxide released by a natural gas-fired electric plant per megawatt hour generated. If 1 metric ton = 1000 kg and 1 pound = 0.4536 kg, estimate the total energy generated by natural gas in the world for year 2012, in gigawatt hour.

Answer / kangchuentat

Answer 83 - Mass of carbon dioxide emitted by natural gas-fired electric power generation for every megawatt hour generated = 2000 / 2 = 1000 pounds = 1000 pounds x (0.4536 kg / pound) x (metric ton / 1000 kg) = 0.4536 metric tons. Total energy generated by natural gas in the world for year 2012 = 6799 million metric tons x (megawatt hour / 0.4536 metric tons) = 14988.977 million megawatt hour = 14988977 gigawatt hour, approximately. The answer is given by Kang Chuen Tat; PO Box 6263, Dandenong, Victoria VIC 3175, Australia; SMS +61405421706;;
