Wood recovery and recycling: A source book for Australia

Wood recovery and recycling: A source book for Australia

The source book provides a ‘map’ for transforming wood waste into wood resource. It begins by presenting an overview of wood waste, including the definition of wood waste, types of wood waste materials, different sources of wood waste and the different physical forms of wood waste materials.

It also includes: information on the volumes of wood waste in Australia, including a state-by-state breakdown of estimated tonnages of wood waste generation; summary of various resource recovery opportunities available for value-adding to a waste resource ; issues related to regulation and wood waste recovery; some of the issues surrounding carbon market opportunities for resource recovery and wood waste; and finally key lessons regarding the overall process of resource recovery from wood waste are highlighted.
