Description / Abstract:

The objective of this Special Publication is to provide guidance on the application of Life Cycle Impact Assessment (LCIA) to the Pulp and Paper Production Phase (PPPP) of the Pulp and Paper Life Cycle. It is important to note that this publication addresses the LCIA-PPPP only. Figure 1.1 shows the relationship of this study to the four stages of Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) (CSA Standard 2760) and the five phases of the pulp and paper life cycle. Since the goal of LCA is to evaluate the environmental effects of a product or activity holistically by analyzing its entire life cycle, the use of this study or the resultant LCIA-PPPP methodology should be restricted to within-mill comparisons and to guide improvement analysis. Between-mill and external comparisons ihould consider the entire life cycle, from harvesting through waste management (Figure 1.1). CSA is developing guidelines for the other phases of the pulp and paper life cycle.

he intended use of this Special Publication is for internal comparison and improvement. Thus, important objectives of the document are pollution prevention and resource conservation, and to provide an understanding to the end user (eg, the mill manager) of the linkage between the mill operation and potential impacts. A great deal of emphasis, therefore, has been placed on the stressor-impact linkages ("impact chains") which are known to be of issue or concern for the pulp and paper industry in Canada.
