|Characterisation Method Name:|
|PM10 impact on wood|
|Principal Method Name:|
|EPS : Global warming pathway|
The characterisation factor is determined by an equivalency method using CO2 as a
The GWP100 for PM10 was determined to – 8.54.
Calculation of characterisation factor
The global warming pathway specific
characterisation factor for CO2 with respect to wood was determined to – 0.00116 kg wood per kg CO2. Thus we obtain the characterisation factor for PM10 to –8.54*(-0.00116) = 0.00991 kg wood per kg PM10.
