Kyoto protocol


Within the negotiations of Kyoto protocol decided the participating countries on 10.12.1997 to permanently decrease the emissions of gases that cause the heating of the Earth atmosphere. For this purpose there was introduced the concept “Potential of global warming” that is expressed by joined equivalent emissions of CO2. This figure displays how much CO2 has been produced during all measured phases of the life cycle. The word “equivalent” means that there are also emissions of other greenhouse gases of which greenhouse effect is re-calculated to the level of CO2 effect.

Emissions generated by a production of 1 kg LLDPE = 1,89 kg eq in the year 2011


Production of plastics since 1950 in Europe and in the world
