Allocation Technique for partitioning the inputs and outputs of a system amongst products
Converted corrugated box The corrugated board that is ready to use as a box. All shavings are accounted for.
Effluent Water leaving the mill after treatment
Incineration + energy Incineration of residues with energy recovery
Fluting Paper grades used for the corrugated layer of corrugated board
Functional additives Additives that influence the properties of paper
Liner Paper grades used for the surface layer of corrugated board
Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) Compilation and evaluation of the inputs, outputs and the potential environmental impacts of a product system throughout its life cycle.
Life Cycle Impact Assessment Phase of the life cycle assessment aimed at understanding and evaluating the magnitude and significance of the potential environmental impacts of a product system.
Life Cycle Inventory Analysis Phase of the life cycle assessment involving compilation, and the quantification of inputs and outputs, for a given product system throughout its life cycle
Packaging materials Materials bought and used for the packaging of the saleable product (wrappings, pallets)
Primary Fibre Virgin fibre, fibres that have not been recycled before use in paper production
Process additives Additives that are used to guarantee that the process of paper production runs smoothly or to increase the production
Rejects Material in recovered paper, which is eliminated during pulp preparation.
Shavings The total of all base paper cuttings that do not end up in the converted corrugated box (e.g. from corrugator trimmings, die-cuttings). Shavings are 100% recycled.
Tonne nsp (net saleable product) 1 tonne of paper/corrugated board product sold to the customer, including core plugs for the paper.
Transport distance of recovered paper Distance from recovered paper supplier to the paper mill
Transport distance of wood Distance from harvesting site to the paper mill
Wellenstoff Recovered fibre-based Fluting
