Iordan, C.; Hu, X.; Arvesen, A.; Kauppi, P.; Cherubini, F. (2018): Contribution of forest wood products to negative emissions. Historical comparative analysis from 1960 to 2015 in Norway, Sweden and Finland. In: Carbon balance and management 13 (1), S. 12. DOI: 10.1186/s13021-018-0101-9.

“In this work, we quantify the net CO2 emissions and the temporary carbon storage in forest products in Norway, Sweden and Finland for the period 1960–2015, and investigate their correlation. We use a Chi square probability distribution to model the oxidation rate of C over time in HWPs, taking into consideration specific half-lives of each category of products. We model the forest regrowth and estimate the time-distributed C removal. We also integrate the specific HWP flows with an emission inventory database to quantify the associated life-cycle emissions of fossil CO2, CH4 and N2O.”
