Private Jet Carbon Emission Offset System

Welcome to the “World’s First Open Source Private Jet Carbon Offset System”. Paramount Business Jets developed this system to help make private aviation greener around the world by making the process of offsetting carbon emissions for private jets simpler, faster and more accessible to the entire private aviation industry.

We've open sourced this system's code and it's available for free download for the entire industry.

How to Use this Carbon Offset System

The system has been created with HTML and Javascript, with minimal CSS for styling. This is mainly as a proof of concept and to make it as easy as possible to modify it and brand it according to your needs.

Feel free to integrate it and adapt the code with your preferred backend language to create your unique version of the private jet carbon offset system.

Data for the system and other notes

The javascript file contains two JSON objects (aircraftById and aircraftByCategory) for the aircraft data, including the fuel burn for each type of aircraft. These numbers have been sourced through research.

Some aircraft do not have fuel burn numbers. For those aircraft, the system estimates the fuel burn by taking the average of all the other aircraft in the same category.

The formula used to calculate the emissions in pounds (lbs) is:
Emissions (lbs) = Flight Time (hours) x Fuel Burn (gal/hr) x 21.1*

The emissions are converted to Metric Tonnes (mT) as follows:
Emissions (mT) = Emissions (lbs) / 2204.60

*21.1 is the Carbon Dioxide Emissions Coefficient for Jet Fuel (lbs of CO2 emitted per gallon of fuel burnt), as specified by the US Energy Information Administration.
