Emission scenario documents

 

Emission scenario documents (ESDs) are used to estimate the initial release of substances from biocidal products (or treated materials) to the environment. ESDs for several product types were developed in the EUBEES I and II projects. In addition, ESDs for some product types were developed by the OECD. All finalised ESDs for biocides are available here, where the ESDs are presented per product type in separate folders. In these folders, relevant additional guidance and information is also presented.

Product Type 21
Antifouling products

 

For antifouling products PT21, the model MAMPEC version 2.5 is used for release estimation. This model can be downloaded from the CEPE (European Council of the Paint, Printing Ink and Artists' Colours Industry) or from the Delft Hydraulics Software web site. Recently, MAMPEC version 3.0 was released and can be downloaded from the same web-sites.
