Characterisation Method Information
Characterisation Method Name:
Freons impact on severe morbidity
Version:
1999
Date Completed:
1999
Principal Method Name:
EPS: equivalency method using CFC-11 as reference
Method Description:
In the same way as for CFC-11, characterisation factor may be calculated, but applying other equivalency factors.
Literature Reference:
Steen B (1999b): A systematic approach to environmental priority strategies in product development (EPS). Version 2000 Models and data of the default method CPM report Chalmers University of Technology Sweden
Methodological Range:
The system borders are the same as for "CFC-11 impact on severe morbidity", i.e. global and 100 years.
