|Characterisation Method Name:|
|PM10 impact on NEX|
|Principal Method Name:|
|EPS: global warming pathway|
|NEX is Normalised EXtinction of species.|
The characterisation factor is determined by an equivalency method using CO2 as a
The GWP for PM10 was determined to – 8.54 in section "PM10 impact on YOLL"
Calculation of characterisation factor
The characterisation factor for CO2 with respect to NEX was determined to 1.26E–14 per kg CO2. Thus we obtain the characterisation factor for PM10 to –8.54*1.26E–14 = - 1.08E-13 NEX per kg PM10.
