2.G. - Use of Charcoal for barbecues
In sub-category NFR 2.G. - Use of Charcoal for barbecues TSP, PM10 and PM2.5 emissions from charcoal used for barbecue are reported.
|For 2.G. L: Cd, PM10 / L & T: PM2.5
The annual charcoal consumption for barbecue is calculated as annual import + production - export, and the relevant volumes of charcoal are extracted from national statistics by the Federal Statistical Office. Other applications for charcoal are not included.
The model is based on the two assumptions that there is no storage of charcoal and that all charcoal is burned.
The amount of charcoal used for barbecue has been ever-expanding from 1990 to 2012 and is predominantly imported. As there is only one big producer, produced amounts and resulting emissions are confidential.
The emission factors are derived from the CEPMEIP Database (SNAP: 060508).1)
The uncertainties of emissions are 54% for the lower and upper bounds.
The import and export data for 2019 were changed as revised activity data for the foreign sale was available from the Federal Statistical Office.
The emissions of PM2.5, PM10 and TSP reported for 2019 increased by 32.49 t.
For pollutant-specific information on recalculated emission estimates for Base Year and 2019, please see the pollutant specific recalculation tables following chapter 8.1 - Recalculations.
No improvements are planned.
