Calculating and reducing carbon dioxide emissions, by Inge van den Akker (with Bausch & Lomb)
July 11, 2013
This report describes the development of a method to calculate carbon dioxide emissions resulting from air, rail, road and sea transport. Based on the method a tool in Microsoft Access is built and with this tool the carbon dioxide emissions resulting from the transport of lenses of Bausch & Lomb are calculated. Based on these results the expected costs are calculated for four different scenarios, all based on different possible governmental regulations. The method and the calculations give insights in the importance of the different factors. Also different possibilities to reduce the carbon dioxide emissions are described and applied to Bausch & Lomb.
