POCP Photochemical Ozone Creation Potential

The thinning of the stratospheric ozone layer is caused by the catalytic effect of halogens under special climate conditions. The increased ultraviolet radiation reaching the surface of the Earth as a result exacerbates problems such as skin cancer and cataracts. The main offending substances are chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) R11.


For the calculation the characterisation factors according to ÖNORM EN 15804, Annex C are used. For older LCA data (before publication of ÖNORM EN 15804:2014) the POCP potentials according to CML 2001 v3.9 were used.
