Emission factors

Most emission factors used are default values from the EMEP/EEA air pollutant emission inventory guidebook 2013.
EF for TSP, PM10, and PM2.5 derive from the research study "Studie zur Korngrößenverteilung (PM10 und PM2.5) von Staubemissionen" [1].


Recalculations have been necessary due to updated default EF from EMEP/EEA air pollution emission inventory guidebook - 2013.
