Product information

This sector EPD covers particleboard manufactured in Australia from Australian grown wood residues.

Particleboard is a composite panel produced from wood residues (forest thinnings, log harvesting waste, co-products of sawmilling, etc.) 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 residues, transport to manufacturing site, chipping, screening, defibration, drying, blending, mat forming, pressing, finishing and melamine overlay. 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.
