Life Cycle Assessment of Deinked and Virgin Pulp

The National Geographic Society (NGS) commissioned ENVIRON to conduct a life cycle assessment (LCA) to evaluate the relative impacts of deinked pulp derived from waste paper versus the impacts of virgin pulp produced from virgin wood sources that would be displaced by the use of the deinked pulp. The objectives of the study were to:

  • Identify and quantify the key factors contributing to the relative environmental impacts of deinked and virgin pulp, and to
  • Inform NGS actions and decision making.
