GTU Calculates Its Own Greenhouse Gas Emissions
22 December 2021
A study aiming to determine strategies to reduce greenhouse emission quantities by calculating the greenhouse emission quantities at GTU campus took place at GTU. The study, which is part of a graduation project aiming to ensure energy efficiency at GTU, was conducted by Assoc. Prof. Orhan Sevimoğlu and student Nurhan Emlik both from GTU's Department of Environmental Engineering. Total greenhouse emissions for the years 2018, 2019, and 2020 were calculated and examined under three different scopes. The year 2020 was found to be the year with the least greenhouse emission, which was attributed to Marmaray's coming into service and the switch to distance education due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
