Continent-specific intake fractions and characterization factors for toxic emissions: Does it make a difference?
Goal and Scope. This paper aims to develop continental characterization factors for the human toxicity impacts of emissions released to air in different continents and to analyze under which conditions this spatial distinction makes a significant difference compared to generic characterization factors.
