COSTARICA / Costa Rica
The Costa Rican government set a goal to become carbon neutral by 2021. To achieve this goal, they must mitigate all CO2 emissions. Each year there are 1,000 structural fires in Costa Rica that contribute to these emissions. Tracking the emissions from structural fires is a step towards achieving carbon neutrality. This project created two models in the form of a Java application to calculate emissions from fires in warehouses and industrial buildings. SHPI Ingeniería, our sponsor, will share the models with organizations to monitor and raise awareness about structural fire emissions. These organizations include Estado de la Nación, Carbono Neutral and the Bomberos. Future recommendations focus on creating an accurate model for hospital buildings.
