|Technique used in life cycle assessment 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.
|Water leaving the mill after treatment
|Incineration + energy
|Incineration of residues with energy recovery
|Paper grades used for the corrugated layer of corrugated board
|Additives that influence the properties of paper
|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
|Materials bought and used for the packaging of the saleable product (wrappings, pallets)
|Paper for recycling
|Paper collected for repulping at a papermill to produce papers containing recycled fibres. Paper for recycling may originate from pre-consumer sources (e.g., process waste) or post-consumer sources
|Virgin fibre, fibres that have not been recycled before use in paper production
|Additives that are used to guarantee that the process of paper production runs smoothly or to increase the production
|Material in recovered paper, which is eliminated during pulp preparation.
|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
|Recovered fibre-based Fluting
|Fibres produced from recycled paper ready for use in paper production
