5 March 2020
The data is provided as grams per kilogram (rather than grams per tonne) due to the scale of the data, for example for PM2.5 emissions from coal, 8.7g/kg would become 8700g/tonne)
The PM2.5 emissions in grams per kilogram of fuel used are:
(a) Household coal: 8.7g/kg
(b) Wet Wood: 28g/kg
(c) Dry wood: 7.2g/kg
(d) Oil for households (referred to as 'burning oil’ in the National Atmospheric Emissions Inventory): 0.083g/kg
