Source-receptor matrices of the "Costs of air pollution from industrial facilities" report:

Thank you for the incredibly useful EEA report "Revealing the costs of air pollution from industrial facilities in Europe". The new source-receptor matrices calculated for regional air pollutants for the report do not seem to be publicly available. The report does give marginal damage costs for each pollutant by country, but those values are an aggregation of crop, building and health impact costs and do not allow one to reconstruct the estimated relationships between pollutant release and population exposure to PM2.5 and SOMO. Therefore, the methodology is not reproducible and breakdown to costs from different types of damage is not obtainable from the published methodology. I would be grateful if I could get ideally the S-R matrices or if that is not possible the marginal health damage costs (as opposed to aggregated damage costs) per pollutant using the two different valuations based on mortality and YOLL.

Dear Lauri,

Thank you for your feedback concerning our recent report. We understand you have also been in contact with the authors of the report, who have already been able to provide you with the requested information.
We hope it was very helpful in your work.
