The LCA study of our board is based on the ISO 14040:2006 and 14044:2006 standards, accepted on an international level, currently considered among the most reliable standards to measure the environmental impact of a product.
Concerning the inventories of the environmental burdens associated to the various sub-processes included in the system (production of raw materials, energy and fuel, transport and waste disposal treatments), we took as reference the ecoinvent database, in its most recent version, that is 3.31.
The end of life of the packaging used for ready-for-sale board was determined by considering the overall recycling rate and energy recovery rate for the different packaging materials, in the territory context in which the board is used.
