|Characterisation Method Name:|
|HF impact on wood|
|Principal Method Name:|
|EPS: secondary aerosol pathway|
|Model for secondary aerosol pathway|
The characterisation factor is determined by an equivalency method using PM10 as a reference.
The same equivalency factor is used as in "HF impact on severe morbidity", i.e. 1.80 kg ‘effective’ PM10/kg HF.
Calculation of characterisation factor
According to "PM10 impact on wood" there are 0.00991 kg wood lost per kg PM10.
This will give 1.80*0.00991 = 0.0178 kg wood lost per kg HF.
