In the wiki, we have about the observation (datapoint):
Number: Floating point numbers xsd:float. (...) Note also that ecoSpold2 has the option of providing a @mathematicalRelation that defines a mathematical formula which can also contain variables and which will fill the value of the @amount if @isCalculatedAmount is TRUE. This is a very explicit and recommendable option for providing provenance information. In ecoSpold2 the formula are defined by a sub-set of the OpenFormula standard. Other RDF-related formula standards are described on the Wikipedia-page for MathML.
The @mathematicalRelation allows exactly to e.g. express an emission as an input number multiplied by a fixed combustione coefficient.
Re. the distinction between CO2 emissions and
CO2 as a product, one option can be to use different names
(such as "carbon dioxide, purified" or ""carbon dioxide, under pressure"
for the product).
