The Environment and eTrikes - eTrikes Canada
According to a February study by Experian Automotive, which specializes in collecting and analyzing automotive data, North Americans own an average of 2.28 vehicles per household, and more than 35 percent of households own three or more cars.
A normal passenger vehicle can emit about 4.6 metric tons of carbon dioxide every year. This assumes that the average gasoline powered vehicle on the road today has a fuel economy of about 9.5 km/litre and will drive approximately 18,500 kilometers per year. Every litre of gasoline burned creates about 2,350 grams of CO2.
By 2020 it is estimated that the demand for car tires in the US and Canada will hit 364 million. With an average life of three to four years North America will have the task of disposing of 364 million tires in 2024. That is just shy of one million tires a day.
And that's just the tires.....
