|Characterisation Method Name:|
|CO impact on YOLL|
|Principal Method Name:|
|EPS: global warming pathway|
|YOLL stands for Year of Lost Life.|
The characterisation factor is determined by an equivalency method using CO2 as a reference.
Equivalency factor GWP100 (Global Warming Potential) for CO is 3. (Houghton et. al, 1990)
The characterisation factor for CO2 in relation to YOLL is 7.93E–07 YOLL/kg CO2.
The characterisation factor for CO in relation to YOLL is therefore 3*7.93E–07 =2.38E–06 YOLL/kg CO.

|The impact is of global character. The modelled system is therefore global.|
