Estimation of carbon stocks in the long-term wood products pool (CP-W), v1.1

REDD

This module allows for ex ante estimation of carbon stocks in the long-term wood products pool in the baseline case. Carbon stocks treated here are those stocks remaining in wood products after 100 years; the bulk of emissions associated with timber harvest, processing and waste, and eventual product retirement occur within this timeframe, and this module employs the simplifying assumption that the proportion remaining after 100 years is effectively "permanent".

This module was assessed and approved as part of VM0007.
