The SYPAL, with the support of France wood forest, commissioned in 2011 FCBA to carry out the analysis of life cycle of the European pallet. This study shows that total "GHG" emissions (greenhouse gases) are 26.5 kg CO2e per pallet on its life cycle, without taking account of the processing at the end of life of waste wood reconditioning and palette. Energy valuations and material of these elements to make up 72% of the GHG emissions related to the production and use of a palette.
