Particleboard

This sector EPD covers particleboard manufactured in Australia from Australian grown wood residues, wood chips and pulp logs.

Particleboard is a composite panel produced from wood residues (forest thinnings, log harvesting waste, co-products of sawmilling, post-consumer recycled wood, etc.) and pulp logs that can be engineered for specific applications. It is widely used to manufacture kitchens, wardrobes, laundries, furniture, wall panels, architectural joinery and flooring in retail fit-outs, multi-residential buildings, hotels and housing projects.

The declared unit is 1 square metre of particleboard. The scope is ‘cradle-to-gate’ with options. The production stage includes production of wood inputs, transport to manufacturing site, chipping, screening, defibration, drying, blending, mat forming, pressing, finishing, melamine overlay and packaging. Four end-of-life scenarios are included: two for landfill, one energy recovery, and one for recycling.

The document complies with the requirements for an industry-wide EPD under the Green Building Council of Australia’s Green Star rating system and the Infrastructure Sustainability (IS) rating scheme of the Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia (ISCA).
