Description

Location: GLO - Global
This activity represents the combustion of wood chips from industry in Switzerland in new (=installed in 2014) boilers and is used for the global activity as first approximation with uncertainty factors adjusted accordingly. Equipped with an industrial electrostatic precipitator in order to comply with PM emission regulation as well as with an SNCR device for reduction of NOx emissions. Air emission factors as well as the boiler efficiency represent average annual operation including start and stop (warm-up and shut-down). Therefore, emission data will be higher and efficiency will be lower than rated values provided by manufacturers. The inventory shall be considered as being representative for boilers with nominal capacities above 2MW.

Undefined unit processes (UPRs) are the unlinked, multi-product activity datasets that form the basis for all of the system models available in the ecoinvent database. This is the way the datasets are obtained and entered into the database by the data providers. These activity datasets are useful for investigating the environmental impacts of a specific activity (gate-to-gate), without regard to its upstream or downstream impacts.

Technology

Modern boiler technology available on the Swiss market, installed in 2014.
