Klimaaftryk i kg CO2e/kg
Detailed background data
It has been assumed that the food processing industry is located in Denmark. The reference flow is 1 kg can content. A can contains 75% corn wet weight and 25% water. Corn dry matter in the can is approx. 25% but this needs to be adapted in the model as coming from the farm (dried at approx. 85%). We have recalculated the input of dry corn based on these figures, and added the remainder as tap water, which has been added to the original volume of tap water in the report. Steam is converted from kg to MJ assuming a calorific value of 2.75 MJ/kg. Retail is modelled assuming the following storage: Ambient. See more details as well as literature references in the methodoly report on: www.denstoreklimadatabase.dk.
Data on inputs and outputs of the food processing industry is modelled using: Miller (2017).
