The graph shows development of specific CO2 emissions, defined as emissions of CO2 per transport unit (tonne-km), by freight transport mode (road, rail, maritime, inland shipping) over the period 1995 to 2011.
Data coverage: EEA-32 excluding Iceland and Liechtenstein
Specific CO2 emissions data for all transport modes are modelled data derived from TREMOVE (http://www.tremove.org/model/index.htm) and TRENDS (http://www.forum.europa.eu.int/Public/irc/dsis/pip/library?l=/environment_trends).
Specific CO2 emissions are expressed in grams per tonne-kilometer.

When the time comes to change your car battery, recycle your old one.
Check with your local authorities for their advice as they might recommend that you take it to a special disposal site, or to a garage which collects them for recycling and proper disposal.
