The perfect Environmental Performance of Wood

 

How much energy is used to support a fuel? What is the cost for transportation is to the consumer? If the transport dangerous? Can the fuel as it is to be burned, or one must first improve it? Be expensive and complex for the storage containers or even their own rooms required? Which residues and emissions to fall?
These are all questions that need when creating a fireplace LCA are considered. The fuel wood, burned in a modern fireplace comes with this Ökotest gone well. Item by item:

  • Trees absorb carbon dioxide exhaled by man. From the carbon they contained therein are based on lignin and cellulose, bark and roots, branches and leaves. In their leaves and needles producing trees, like millions of tiny chemical factories, the oxygen we need people to breathe and life. 
    Wood is a pollutant filter. Trees comb pollutants from the air we breathe and keep them firmly on the surface of their leaves or needles. Up to 700 kilograms of dust, a single deciduous tree grown out of the air. 
    Wood is a climate regulator. Trees store water and release it slowly over millions of stomata on leaves and needles from back to the environment. About the green crowns of a forest, the temperature is an average of 3 ° C lower than in surrounding areas. Wind sweeps through the damp, cool air between the tribes and takes her into the cities - a welcome refreshment in the summer. 
    Wood is a drinking water reservoir. A single adult broadleaf moved his fine root 30.000 liters of water through the soil, as many as 20 people need in a year for drinking and cooking. The tree stores the water, it slows down the rain and protects the soil under its canopy of leaves from drying out. In our forests, the rain water slowly seep into the ground water, drinking water supply for more decades. 
    Wood cleans the air of greenhouse gases: Over 6 tons of carbon dioxide a deciduous tree of adult fish per year, with the leaves from the air. For millions of years trees provide the balance of gases, which makes life on our planet possible. 
    Wood is stored solar energy. Sunlight, water and carbon dioxide are the building blocks from which timber is created. A tree for life, sunlight in assimilation is bound chemically. Sun is to lignin and cellulose. When burned it will be free again. Solar energy heats up the stove when wood is burned. 
    Wood does not contain sulfur or heavy metals. And substances that are not included in the wood can not occur when burned. 
    Wood is safe to transport. It does not explode, it does not evaporate and pollute water, any soil.
    Wood can be stored without danger. For years, no technique, no maintenance, no pollution to the environment. Wood is practically inexhaustible. A fuel that grows back. A source of energy that flows in times of crisis. 
    Wood leaving no waste. In a modern stove burns wood to a tiny ash residue. So tiny that the ash may remain for weeks in the oven, because the extract did not pay. Ash is nothing but concentrated, residents with valuable minerals. When at last a good amount of ash is gathered in the oven, then it would be much too good to throw them away. Pure wood ash is a high quality fertilizer for gardens, lawns, flower beds and flower pot. 
    Wood makes no debt to nature. It only gives off as much carbon dioxide as it has previously brought a tree from the air and bound. It does not matter if the wood burns or rots in the forest - the carbon tax remains the same. New trees absorb carbon dioxide, the wood emits when burned. A closed circuit - the balance of nature!
