Introducing deforestation in LCA: Exploration of its potential application to the fiber-­based industry

The goal of this screening study is to calculate the impacts associated with deforestation and explore how this may be connected to wood and fiber-based products in the context of LCA.  This screening study is divided in two parts:

  • Evaluation of the environmental impacts related to deforestation and due to wood extraction (‘deforestation process’), for 1 ha of deforestation, and
  • Exploration how deforestation and its associated impacts, can be linked to wood and fiber-­‐ based products, and therefore its potential increase in impacts.
