MODEL INPUT OUTPUT DATA

Input Data


A 'Facility', e.g. coal fired power plant, is defined due to parameters (e.g. technical parameters like stack parameters, emissions, but also occupied land area, etc.). A facility can be any process, or life cycle stage of a technology. EcoSense was typically used for assessing the emissions due to operation of a single source, like a oil fired power station. However, the tool can also be used to evaluate the pressure on the environment (e.g. emissions and land occupation) caused by other sources.

Input data for a facility:

Parameter Unit
INFORMATION ON POWER PLANTS
Description text
Electricity production per year GWh/a
FLUE GAS
Volume Nm3/h
Temperature K
LOCATION OF THE FACILITY
Country
Longitude E
Latitude N
BUILDING PROPERTIES
Stack height m
Stack diameter m
EMISSION OF AIR POLLUTANTS
MAJOR PARTS
SO2, NOx, PM10, PM2.5, NH3, NMVOC mg/Nm3
MINOR PARTS
Cd, As, Cr, Ni, Hg, Pb µg/Nm3
Cr-VI, CH2O µg/Nm3
Dioxin ng/Nm3
LAND USE CHANGE
EMISSION OF GREENHOUSE GASES
CO2, CH4, N2O tons
RADIO NUCLIDE EMISSIONS

Output Data


EcoSenseWeb supports the evaluation of results by generating different types of reports. The results are either displayed on an aggregated level or impacts and external costs occurring within individual countries are displayed. The reports include results for the local, regional and hemispheric analysis. Depending on the calculation mode for which the impact assessment was carried out, results are available for different reference units (e.g. impacts per year or impacts per kWh).

EcoSenseWeb produces following intermediate results and reports impacts and external costs at different levels of details:

Concentration levels of primary and secondary particles and ozone
Receptor (i.e. population, crops, building material) exposure
Physical impacts resulting from exposure to airborne pollutants
(Damage) Costs due to impacts on human health, crops, building materials, ecosystems and due to climate change.

The EcoSenseWeb-server is currently down for maintenance. This means you only have restricted access! You can still access all your existing results but new calculations are not possible!
We are currently updating our software. The new version will be available during 2017!
