Definition

See discussion page for discussions of exposure: D↷

Data

Causality

Upstream:

Downstream:

  • Health effects of PM2.5 emissions in Bioher

Unit

µg/m3

Formula

(Q*iF)/(BR*Pop), where

  • Q is emission (µg/s) that is emitted in heating energy with 10 000 inh.
  • iF is intake fraction
  • BR is breathing rate(m^3/s)
  • Pop is population (in Bioher: 10 000 inh.)

Result

Table . Exposure to PM2.5 (µg/m3) in Bioher (electricity is excluded).

Own heating Suburb plant Electricity Total
PM2.5 (µg/m3) 0.310 0.233 - 0.543
