WHAT IS CARBON INTENSITY?

The carbon intensity (CI) of an energy source includes the total emitted greenhouse

gases associated with its production and use and is measured as a ratio of

the equivalent amount of CO2 emitted to the amount of energy it contains.

Less CO2 Produced

=     Smaller CI     =

Greener Fuel

Today, typical motor fuels can include gasoline, diesel, and natural gas. But renewable

natural gas, which is composed primarily of methane, is one a few carbon negative

fuels – it removes more greenhouse gases from the atmosphere than it creates!
