- The study evaluates the greenhouse gas(GHG) reduction potential of paper recycling by paper industry in South Korea and determines the positive impact on global warming by conserving the world's forests through decreasing pulp wood use. South Korea is one of the leading countries in the world that recycle papers with a collection rate of 71.8 oercent and a recycling rate of 7404 percent in 2005. Greenhouse gas emission reduction potential in terms of carbon dioxide (CO2)eyivalent from paper recycling was asseessed scientifically bt the use of Life Cycle Assessment (LCA). Three types of papers including newsprint, container-board, and white-board were used for assessment in this study. Results of recycling rates. Greenhouse gas emission reduction factor of 0.74869 .......
