This paper discusses mathematical calculations of the greenhouse gas emissions from small
industries, which cause global warming in the atmosphere. Global warming is causing an
increase in ocean levels, it is estimated that most of the coastal areas of the world will be
submerged by 2050, resulting in extinction of some insects and animals. Simple calculations
are presented to estimate three greenhouse gases, carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide
emissions from small industry. The emissions from fossil fuels in a small mill are given with
mathematical calculations. Emissions from combined heat and power plants are allocated in
this paper by using ‘The World Resources Institute and World Business Council for
Sustainable Development Efficiency’ method.
