Method

The amount of charcoal used for barbecue has been ever-expanding from 1990 to 2012 and is predominantly imported. After several years of a stable demand of charcoal the consumption is declining the fourth year in series. As there is only one big producer, used amounts and emissions factors are confidential.

Activity data

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.

Emission factors

The emission factors are comparable as those from the CEPMEIP Database (SNAP: 060508).1)

Uncertainties

The uncertainties of consumption are 20% and the uncertainties of emission are not more than 54% for the lower and upper bounds.

Recalculations

The import and export data for 2021 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 1.6 %.

For pollutant-specific information on recalculated emission estimates for Base Year and 2021, please see the pollutant specific recalculation tables following chapter 8.1 - Recalculations.

Planned improvements

No improvements are planned.
