I think that to not include USE PHASE for some kind of containers shoud introduce a problem about CO2 storage. For product with a long life (for example CD, DVD etc) not considering use phase exclude the possibility to take into account the CO2 storage. I propose to consider the possibility to include Use phase as an optional phase. /Emanuela Scimia

The following statement is included in the PCR: "Delayed emission due to products with a long life span may be included using the approach of the upcoming ISO 14067 standard." When developing the PCR, it seemed like a good idea to await further consensus on calculation of delayed emissions before including it in the document. This may be reconsidered when the PCR is updated. Best regards, / Kristian Jelse, PCR moderator 32153
