Post subject:  GHG characterisation factors - USEIO

I suppose the GHG in the USEIO model are aggregated using the IPCC factors with a timeframe of 100 years.

Can this information be confirmed ?

There are also IPCC factors for timeframes of 20 and 500 years and I want to make sure I use the same timeframe when adding impacts from process data to impacts from EIOLCA data.

For example, IMPACT 2002+ uses characterisation factors with a timeframe of 500 years for GHG.

Thanks a lot.

Not sure how replying to this message slipped through the cracks, but we're using the IPCC 2001 values in the 1997 and 2002 US models.
