Hello, I have found information regarding the damage cost of Benzene on the paper "Costs of air pollution from European industrial facilities 2008–2012" ([…]/costs-of-air-pollution-2008-2012). However there seems to be some contradiction between the figures presented on page 26, table 3.1 (76000 Euro/ Tonne) and page 70, table A3.7 (0.076 Euro/ Kg). Other pollutants' damage costs appear to match along the Annexes and table 3.1. Which of these two is the correct value?
Much appreciation.

The values used in the assessment are indeed those given in Table A3.6a (for specific countries), and for Europe as whole in Table A3.7 i.e. the value of 76 euro/tonne is the correct one to be used.

We thank you for notifying us of the inconsistency in Table 3.1 of this report, and we will correct this in the version of the report online.

Best regards.
