The IPCC inventory guidelines (IPCC 2006 and IPCC 2019) have not yet provided emission factors for wood-based materials that contain synthetic adhesives. Moreover, statistics on adhesives do not differentiate plywood, particleboard (PB), and medium-density fiberboard (MDF) as demand sectors. To overcome this limitation, we developed a dynamic material flow model and applied a data reconciliation method to estimate the unit amount of adhesives used in the wood-based materials.
