Calculation of CO2-Footprints and effect of coatings
The presented approach enables the calculation of CO2-footprints of prints. Epistemic errors are discussed. The approach presented proves that coatings can contribute significantly to the CO2-footprint of coated substances - the areal coverage of coatings (e.g. ink) has to be considered when CO2-footprints of prints are reported. In connection with market figures, the approach also proves that the most important variables to be taken into account, in addition to the area coverage, are the basis weight of the substrate and the conversion factors.
