Environmental Information of charterinad
Human activities have altered the natural cycle of the atmosphere by adding more CO2 to it. Reducing and eliminating natural sources to transform the CO2 we emit has become of vital importance to us. The main cause of the increase in CO2 concentrations in the atmosphere is mainly due to the burning of fossil fuels (oil, coal and natural gas) and deforestation.
The ocean plays a major and key role in maintaining the balance of the carbon cycle by absorbing the excess of CO2 from the atmosphere. When sea water absorbs CO2, chemical reactions take place, causing an increase of the ocean acidity. This increase in acidity makes it difficult for corals to build and maintain their skeletons, and for shellfish such as lobsters, scallops and clams to create their shells.
Keeping the current rate of increase in CO2 concentrations in the atmosphere will bring our ocean ecosystems to their limit of viability. Therefore it is very important to reduce and decrease CO2 emissions through personal actions in order to protect our ocean.
What is the carbon footprint?
The carbon footprint quantifies the impact that our activities have on the environment. It calculates the greenhouse gases (e.g. CO2), using the unit of measurement: Kg. Once the size and the footprint have been defined, it is possible to implement a strategy to reduce and compensate our emissions, through different actions, such as modifying our consumption habits, buying local products, using public transport and improving the energy efficiency of our homes.
What is the carbon footprint of our llaüt Menorquin Yacht?
The carbon footprint of our yacht (Llaüt Menorquin) that we cause when we conducting our fishing charters, excursions and tours to Barcelona is produced by the emission of CO2 during the combustion of the fuel (Diesel) by our engine and also from the use of the yacht generator. The carbon footprint of boats and yachts depends on many factors: Length, engines, fuel, efficiency and the number of hours of use of the engines, speed…
Our Menorquin yacht has the following characteristics:
Length: 15m Breadth: 5m Engines: 2-317CV Volvo from 2001 Fuel: Diesel, Speed (average): between 8 and 10 knots
Examples of our CO2 emissions are given below:
The nautical activities of charterinad.com carried out in the sea of Barcelona, have a carbon footprint ranging from 76.30 kg to 147.15 kg CO2 which corresponds to a service of 2 h at a speed of 8 knots and a service of 4 hours at a speed of 10 knots.
This amount results by multiplying the following 2 ingredients: The number of liters of diesel consumed by the engines per hour: 25 liter/hour. The corresponding emission factor: 2,7251kg CO2/liter.
The llaüt Menorquin Yacht 150 is a classic, large and slow boat. The cruising speed of our Menorquin yacht is between 8 – 10 knots. Cruising at such velocities diminishes the fuel consumption to low levels and therefore our carbon footprint is low compared to other faster motor yachts with high fuel consumption. Additionally we feature solar panels to charge our service and engine batteries reducing the use of the generator and also diminishing the use of the harbour electricity network. The emission factor and the calculation have been obtained from the information published by the Catalan agency for climate change.
How we can offset our CO2 carbon footprint:
Purchasing carbon offsets is another way to help addressing the carbon footprint of our daily lives. Charterinad.com & nautical staff is committed to make donations for each charter service, to offset our carbon footprint.
Conclusion and objectives for the 2020 season & CharterInad.com
Charterinad.com will make a contribution to the environmental organizations aiming at the preservation of natural habitats and the protection of the environment. We want to convey our clear commitment to the ethical values of ecotourism and strive to reduce the negative impact on the environment of our nautical activities in the sea of Barcelona. Therefore, we ask all our sailing and fishing friends to help us protect the environment.
