Not sure if this is the right place. But any help welcome. We recently modelled ethanol based handgel, and were told by one paper that our LCA was incomplete "ethanol releases are expected to be dominant for POCP as it is emitted to air during use. Apparently, this was not modelled in the study" / We used ecoinvent for our modelling of ethanol.  (EcoSpold 2 intermediate exchange, ID = 508155f4-0601-4a0b-be0f-9ac7d558605a) Any thoughts from anyone would be most welcome

Well, which impact assessment method do you use for POCP? In the LOTOS-EUROS model, ethanol has a characterization factor of 0.674 (kg NMVOCeq) when released to air
