How are the CO2 emissions from e-waste calculated?



  • 0.370 metric tons of CO2 are saved per short tonne as a result of recycling e-waste (source: 2a)
  • 1 short tonne = 0.907 metric tonne (source: 2b)
  • For every 1 metric tonne of e-waste recycled; 0.370/0.907 = 0.407 metric tonne of CO2 is saved.
