The graph shows development of specific CO emissions, defined as emissions of CO per transport unit (passenger-km or tonne-km), by transport mode (road, rail, maritime, inland shipping, air) in 1995 and 2009.
Specific CO 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 CO emissions are expressed in grams per passenger-kilometer (for passenger transport) or tonne-kilometer (for freight transport).

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.
