Application of Statistical Process Control Technique for Carbon Dioxide Emission Monitoring from Travelling by BTS Train
CO2 emission of rail transportation system plays more important role including the expansion of BTS route that consume the energy and emit CO2 gas more and more. The purpose of this research was to find out amount of CO2 emission from travelling by BTS train and determine specific CO2 emission per product in the form of gCO2e/passenger/km then forecasting on CO2 emission from BTS operations. Research process was initiated from collecting monthly data on ridership, distance and electricity for 55 months continuously then regression analysis, CUSUM and time series analysis were used for prediction and analysis of CO2 emission. The finding indicated that BTS’s specific CO2 emission was 24.7 gCO2e/passenger/km. Forecasting CO2 Emission from BTS result that Winters Exponential Smoothing Method is most accuracy then Double Exponential Smoothing Method, Trend Analysis Method and Decomposition Method respectively. The result of these analysis could be used to calculate carbon footprint from staff travelling by BTS train and promote people to use public transport by government as sustainable transportation concept.
