Current standard construction techniques play an increasing role in greenhouse gas emissions, so the need for exploration into alternative methods are a requirement for future products and construction. 47% of the CO2 emissions delivered into our atmosphere are due to building construction and materials. Cross-laminated timber (CLT) and other varied wood products are an emerging, viable source of sustainable, alternative building methods. The presented body of research explains the benefits of utilizing CLT, and other wood products, by expressing their embodied energy calculations and how that is determined by a process known as “Cradle-to-Gate”.
