Life Cycle Analysis from IFEU, Germany


Palm Wood was subjected to Greenhouse Gas Emission Savings Analysis by IFEU, Institute for Energy and Environmental Research, Heidelberg Germany. The entire life cycle was analyzed-from raw material acquisition, usage, end-of-life treatment, recycling and final disposal. The categories examined included: raw material consumption, energy and wastes, waste water, emissions, land use, toxicity and hazard potential.

 
 
The result: Palm Wood, a by-product from the replanting of oil palm plantations for usage in wooden products has great advantages over using wood from conventional sources in terms of Greenhouse Gas Emission Savings.
