Characterisation Method Information
Characterisation Method Name:
CFC-11 impact on wood
Date Completed:
Principal Method Name:
EPS: global warming
Method Description:
Model for global warming pathway

The characterisation factor is determined by an equivalency method using CO2 as a

Equivalency factor

The GWP-100 for CFC-11 is 4000 (IPCC, 1994).

Calculation of pathway specific characterisation factor

The global warming pathway specific characterisation factor of CO2 for wood production capacity was determined to -1.16E-03 kg wood(DS)/kg CO2. Thus the global
warming pathway specific characterisation factor of CFC-11 for wood production
capacity is 4000*(-1.16E-03 ) = -4.64 kg wood/kg CFC-11.
Literature Reference:
IPPC, “The 1994 Report of the Scientific Assessment Working Group of IPCC. Summary for policymakers”, WMO and UNEP, 1994
Methodological Range:
The system borders are the same as for "CFC-11 impact on YOLL", i.e. global and 100 years.
