This report gives the inputs and outputs from the paper mills and the corrugated board plants separately. Inputs and outputs from the processes mentioned in the grey boxes in figure 2, transport of wood and recovered paper to the paper mill and transport of paper to the corrugated board production sites, are included in the database.
To make a complete LCA study supplementary data are needed (outside the grey boxes in Figure 2) such as environmental impacts of chemicals production, pre-combustion, electricity production for the public grid, transport and waste treatment.
The use of the corrugated box (transportation, protection and identification of the product it contains) is not included in the database. The user has to use the design of the box and details on its transportation containing the product to calculate the full life cycle of the box.
