Abstract

Transport is one of the human activities that increases the amount of greenhouse gases in the air. CO2 is the main cause of global warming and contribute for around 80% of all greenhouse gas emissions. Approximately 40% of CO2 emissions from transport is produced only from urban mobility.
The paper presents review of CO2 production based on the amount of sold fuel, number of registered vehicles, busses, trucks and motor cycles (in relation to the population). Research involves 7 major cities in Slovenia: Ljubljana, Maribor, Celje, Koper, Novo Mesto, Kranj and Murska Sobota. Based on the obtained data, we made calculations about the production of Co2 according to the type of fuel. We captured the percentage of consumed gasoline and diesel fuels in each city. According to these findings, we found out the value of Co2 emissions from transport. The purpose of this article is to show possible improvements that would reduce the production of CO2 emissions from transport. There are numerous ways to decrease CO2 emissions in cities not just in transport but mostly with smarter industry. The conducted research has focused on the issue of traffic congestion in cities and to reduce CO2 emissions by 15% in total by 2030, as Slovenia concluded an agreement with other EU members in 2009. We found out that with implementation of wiser traffic management and reduction of traffic in cities there would be a remarkable change in the amount of CO2 emissions produced from transport.

Keywords: CO2 emissions, the cost of CO2 from transport, traffic congestions, traffic management, transport
