Their suggested payment to compensate 1 hour of flying400
SEK per passenger-hour

Effective CO2 reduction cost1778
SEK per ton CO2 reduction

But don't have any strong reliable data, the 400 SEK was just their estimate. So pretty fluffy.
12
But on the positive side, this is the only option that DIRECTLY addresses CO2 impact of flying, so this can be seen as supporting infrastructure development

... but in practice MUCH lower, since this is an investment, so it is likely that the money will come back, plus a payoff!
26
Very concrete numbers. I met the Trine guys and saw their calculation.
27
CO2 calculation is based on how many liters of kerosene that a household will stop burning because of the solar panels.

But is it real? Can't find any compelling evidence that this actually reduces CO2
