9. SCENARIO OF WOOD PRODUCTS USE


In the "1992 year" scenario we are using data from the last Federal statistical analyses of harvesting and exporting of pine in Volgo-Vyatski region.
Scenario of wood products use

- In the "1992 year" scenario we are using data of last Federal statistical analyses of harvesting and exporting of pine in Volgo-Vyatski region. In our calculations we assume that 40% of the products are burnt during the terminal use and 60% are disposed to landfills. The decay rate of products in landfills was assumed to be 5% a year.
- In the scenario of "Terminal use" the amount of burned products is increased to 60% when removed from use. The decay rate in this option was also increased to 10% a year. At the same time the basic harvesting of pine wood was like that in 1992.
- In the scenario "Average for 90-th" estimation of carbon flows in wood based products has been based on the averaged data of harvesting and exporting the wood during the years 1990-2000 years.
- The scenario "Allowable cut" is a theoretical approach, when harvesting of pine wood in the region is equal to the norms of the annual allowable cut. Export of wood in this option is the same as in the previous scenario - average for 90-th.
