Kazakhstan, with a population of 18,513,930 and an urban population of 10,652,915, accounting for 57.54% of the total, has produced 276,683,460 tons of CO2 in 2022. This translates to a per capita CO2 emissions of 14.41 tons, indicating that each individual contributes approximately 14 tons of CO2 annually.
To assess the impact of economic activity on CO2 emissions, it is crucial to examine the Carbon Intensity of GDP. In the case of Kazakhstan, the Carbon Intensity of GDP stands at 1.54 kg of CO2 per International dollar ($USD) of economic output.
This figure is higher than that of the USA (0.3 kg) and China (0.57 kg), indicating that Kazakhstan’s economic activity generates a greater amount of CO2 emissions per unit of economic output.
Kazakhstan Total CO2 emissions by source
How much do coal, oil, gas, cement and flaring contribute to CO2 emissions in Kazakhstan?
In 2022, Kazakhstan’s total CO2 emissions reached 276,683,460 metric tons. The primary sources of these emissions were coal, accounting for 180,818,472 metric tons, and oil, with 42,767,601 metric tons.
Gas contributed 27,980,220 metric tons, while cement and flaring made smaller contributions of 4,448,138 and 16,843,902 metric tons, respectively.
These figures highlight the significant role of coal and oil in Kazakhstan’s economy and their correlation with CO2 emissions.
