Abstract

In this study, Turkey's Carbonization Index (nu) depending on the basic energy indicator has determined as an analytical equation. In this paper, artificial neural networks (ANN) which is quite often in recent years and the possibility of applying to many fields, are used to obtain analytical expressions. Carbonization Index is defined the amount of CO(2) emissions per energy consumption. This parameter is an important for Turkey because of has signed the Kyoto protocol, February 2009. According to the results, accuracy of the carbonization index formulated empirical was obtained as R(2)= 1. It is expected that this study will be helpful in demonstrating carbonization index for policy makers.
