easy to compare embodied energy (the amount of energy it takes to make a product), and emissions to land the environmental footprint of redwood decking to plastic (cellular PVC) and wood-plastic composite (WPC) decking as the two dominant competing products in the residential decking market in

mance, a homeowner may choose to use WPC decking instead of pressure-treated timber because of the ease of maintenance and reduce the energy demands and water use should be taken (Qiang et al. 2014).

materials. In this paper we examine the performance of wood-plastic composite (WPC) decking Comparing the most common decking material, solid lumber, with WPC decking a material without a long-term . of 25 years. Environmental impact measures examined included embodied energy (or more.

Embodied energy does not include the operation and disposal of the building material, which would be considered in a life cycle approach. driveways and outdoor paving; the upstream energy input in making the materials (such as factory office lighting, the energy used in making and maintaining the machines that make

Composite deck manufacturers generally use materials produced in regional proximity to the plant, reducing the transportation impact of their products. After all, the source wood material has already been farmed, logged, shipped and manufactured; reusing that byproduct takes advantage of the original embodied energy.
