Carbon counter

Emissions and abatement of CO2 can be a difficult concepts to grasp. In this section we provide some data of the CO2 emissions created through the use of some common modes of transport and from the food that we put on our plates. The aim is to allow for a better understanding of the CO2 savings yielded through Vireo Energy’s energy production.
