Try out the API
An embeddable carbon calculator for your website.Coming Soon
Currently developing API wrappers for different languages.
If this is something you may be interested in then join the discord :)
The API uses two methods outlined by the IPCC, DEFRA U.K & GHG Protocol. Here is a document detailing the calculation method
The free API has a rate limit of about 5 requests per minute. Authenticated requests using API keys have a higher limit of 20 requests/min. The self-hosted APIs will not have one set by Trip to Carbon.
The limited version of the API will remain free for personal projects and exploration. Trip to Carbon is creating a new paid model that allows for people to self-host the API and other tools (thus, you decide the limit) with updates & support. Sign up to the newsletter to be updated when this is launched!
The use cases are similar to any A.P.I. If you are looking for ideas:
- Calculate your personal or business travel carbon emissions
- Carbon offset app
- Travel carbon analytics app
- Integrate the A.P.I into a travel site or map application like waze
