Characterisation Method Information
Characterisation Method Name:
Other VOC impact on YOLL by oxidant
Version:
2001-05-09
Date Completed:
2001-05-09
Principal Method Name:
Classification based on EPD (Environmental Product Declarations) and characterisation based on EPS
Method Description:
The characterisation factor is determined by an equivalency method using ethylene as a reference for oxidant effects.
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:
Including emissions from anywhere at the globe 1990 and considering a residence time of several days for VOC and its reaction products, the environmental system will also be global. For the global warming pathways, the same system borders as for CO2 is relevant, i.e. 100 years.
Notes:
This characterisation method is one part of the characterisation method "Other VOC impact on YOLL ". The characterisation factor is calculated for the oxidant pathway in the EPS System, according to the method description.
