Forestry Statistics 2006
A revised set of factors that indicates the volume of standing tree crop (wood raw material equivalent - wrme) needed to produce one unit of a final product was published in FC Technical Paper 19 Revised Forecasts of the Supply and Demand for Wood in the UK. The factor for paper products includes an allowance for the proportion of recycled paper manufactured in the United Kingdom. The factors are shown below.
|Product||Measurement Unit||Factor to WRME|
|Fuelwood and charcoal||m³||1.25|
|Other industrial roundwood||m³||1.25|
|Printing and writing paper||tonnes||4.30|
|Other paper and paperboard||tonnes||4.30|
These factors were not used for Tables 3.1 and 3.3, which used an older set of factors to convert to wrme underbark.
