The environmental efficiency of Lunawood Thermowood is remarkably positive. The carbon footprint of Lunawood Thermowood is 117 kg CO2 eq/m3. Compared to non-renewable construction materials, tropical hardwoods and chemically modified woods, Lunawood’s carbon footprint (cradle to gate) is noticeably smaller.
Lunawood ThermoWood® is the ideal foundation for eco-friendly, healthy construction. Building Research Establishment Limited (BRE) has concluded that the expected service life of LunaThermo-D used for exterior cladding and decking is 30 years.
Furthermore, Lunawood products capture CO2 from the atmosphere 5 times more than the emissions generated during their production, as stated in our Environmental Product Declaration (EPD).
The long service life of Lunawood products, combined with their ability to sequester carbon, allows them to serve as a carbon storage from one generation to the next.
