Emission Factor

Nuclear power plant - pressure water reactor - 1000mw (nuclear power plant construction - pressure water reactor - 1000MW)

Emission factor summary

Emissions generated by the activity within the product supply chain as described in ecoinvent v3.10. This is an immobile infrastructure representing the construction of a nuclear power plant pressure water reactor 1000MW. The infrastructure has a capacity of 1 000MW and a lifetime of 40 years. Estimation based on data of the power plant in Gösgen CH with a net installed capacity of 970 MW (constant capacity over 1996 - 2002). The process includes building materials (steel copper titan aluminium concrete asbestos cement wood and paper oil diesel and heating oils) their decommission energy requirements for the construction and land use. The cut-off classification is allocatable product. The activity type is ordinary transforming activity. The reference product amount is 1.
