Table 3 Disposal rates, manufacturing releases, avoided emissions from fossil fuels, and reuse rates for different product categories

From: Carbon forestry is surprising

Product category Manufacturing release (tC∙tC−1) Annual disposal rate Avoided emissions (tC∙tC−1) Reuse rate
Sawn wood, plywood 0.032 0.02 1.0 0.65
Mechanical mass 0.48 0.10 0.15 0.8
Chemical mass 0.13 0.10 0.15 0.8
Biofuel 0.05 0.30 0.65 0
  1. Disposal rate is the proportion of products discarded annually. Reuse rate is the proportion of discarded products used as biofuel
