The fuel purchase model calculates the carbon emissions from using any of a wide variety of transport and facilities fuels. With support for several dozen fuel types, the latest version of the model can interpret not just fuel quantities but also purchase prices and geographic locations, using the latest standards-compliant emissions factors and local energy prices from government agencies. 12 gallons of premium unleaded for a business rental car? Done. Natural gas utility purchases for the Baltimore branch office? Check. An unknown quantity of industrial coking coal procured last March in Texas for $11.72 million? We've got you covered.
Thinktank shows how Fuel Purchase can be employed in connection with a fleet card (a type of credit card for fuel purchases) for automated logistics carbon reporting. Claus Freight also uses this model.
