Table 2 Calorific value per unit

From: Analysis of effect on CO2 emission reduction and cost estimation for the use of Bio-coke: a case study of Osaka, Japan

Energy Calorific value (MJ) Unit
Electricity 3.6 kWh
Light oil 37.7 L
Kerosene 36.7 L
Gasoline 34.6 L
LP gas 50.8 kg
Mixed oil 34.6 L
Multi-diesel oil 40.2 L
Pellets 17.6 kg
  1. Gasoline’s calorific value was used for that of mixed oil, because mixed oil is mostly gasoline. Lubricating oil’s calorific value was used for that of multi-diesel oil, because it is a typical lubricating oil for heavy equipment [23, 24]
