The information can be used as a decision making tool for public authorities and private companies. Wood waste is currently mainly incinerated in the Nordics but preparation for re-use and recycling have to increase in the years to come. We would like to increase the knowledge base on climate and environmental impacts of different end-of-life (EOL) treatment methods for wood waste, so we can ensure better use for EOL wood resources in the Nordics.
The project will focus on wood waste from (hazardous waste as impregnated wood is not included):
- Construction and demolition waste
- Wood packaging waste
- Wood waste fractions collected at municipal recycling stations
