Abstract: The source and direction of the embodied carbon emissions and the embodied SO2 emissions between regions can be better understood by quantifying their transfer characteristics between regions, so as to make up the emission reduction and control plan for each region in a rational way. In this paper, a multi-regional input-output model is used to calculate the embodied carbon and SO2 emissions from Shanxi province in 2007 and 2012. The results show that Shanxi was the export area of the embodied carbon and the embodied SO2. The export areas were mainly located in Jiangsu, Hebei, Zhejiang, Shandong, and the input areas were mainly found in Hebei, Shandong, Inner Mongolia and Henan. The embodied carbon and the embodied SO2 emissions transferred from Shanxi to other regions were mainly concentrated in the metal smelting and products industry, construction industry and chemical industry. The embodied carbon and the embodied SO2 emissions transferred from other regions to Shanxi were mainly concentrated in the construction industry, mining and separation industry, metal smelting and products industry. Based on the above conclusions, some key suggestions and measures are put forward.

Key words: embodied carbon emissions, embodied SO2 emissions, multi-regional input-output model, resource-rich area, Shanxi province
