The biofuels carbon calculator is for fuel suppliers to calculate the carbon saved on a batch of fuels.

This version of the program has been amended in line with the RTFO guidance for year 10 with use of the calculator explained in the user manual.

The calculator:

  • calculates the carbon intensity of your biofuel on a consignment basis
  • includes all the biofuels, feedstocks and biofuel production processes
  • includes emissions from regional cultivation of biofuel feedstocks
  • generates monthly reports
  • retains information provided
  • can be run ‘offline’ on your own systems

The carbon calculator also incorporates a dedicated portal for those users reporting under the Irish Biofuel Obligation Scheme (the BOS).

Further support of the software can be obtained.

The Year 9 user manual and software is available
