Turkmenistan, with a population of 5,942,089 and an urban population of 3,092,738, accounting for 52.05% of the total, has produced 83,006,808 tons of CO2 in 2022. This translates to a per capita CO2 emission of 13.09 tons, indicating that each person generates approximately 13 tons of CO2 annually.
To assess the impact of the country’s economic activity on CO2 emissions, it is crucial to examine the Carbon Intensity of GDP. In Turkmenistan, the Carbon Intensity of GDP is 2.04 kg of CO2 per International dollar ($USD) of economic output produced.
This value is higher compared to both the USA (0.3 kg) and China (0.57 kg), suggesting that Turkmenistan’s economic activity has a relatively higher carbon footprint.
These figures highlight the significant CO2 emissions in Turkmenistan and the relatively high per capita emissions, indicating the need for sustainable practices to mitigate the environmental impact of the country’s economic growth.
Turkmenistan Total CO2 emissions by source
How much do coal, oil, gas, cement and flaring contribute to CO2 emissions in Turkmenistan?
In 2022, Turkmenistan’s total CO2 emissions reached 83,006,808 metric tons. The primary contributors to these emissions were gas, accounting for 58,760,300 metric tons, and oil, with 20,524,557 metric tons.
Cement and flaring made smaller contributions, emitting 1,522,633 metric tons and 2,199,318 metric tons, respectively.
Notably, coal did not contribute to the country’s carbon footprint.
These figures underscore the significant role of gas and oil in Turkmenistan’s economy and their correlation with CO2 emissions.
