Abstract

Past and projected quantitative primary and secondary fuel mixes of the Turkish transportation sector are presented for the period 1970−2020. C02, S02, NOx, particulate matter emissions resulting from fossil fuel based energy consumption in the transportation sector are estimated till the year 2010 using appropriate emission factors for each fuel/transportation system pair. Lead emissions are also included. Strategies for rational utilization of energy in the transportation sector are discussed as well.
