Part 44        Manufacture of reconstituted wood‑based panels

Division 1       Manufacture of reconstituted wood‑based panels

728         Manufacture of reconstituted wood‑based panels

                The manufacture of reconstituted wood‑based panels is the physical and chemical transformation of wood, including wood particles and residues (such as chips, shavings and sawdust) into a reconstituted wood-based panel that:

                (a)    has a density of greater than 500 kg a cubic metre; and

               (b)    has individual wood particles or fibres with an average maximum dimension of no more than 30 mm.

Examples of reconstituted wood-based panels are particleboard and medium density fibreboard.

Division 2       Classification of activity

729         Classification of activity

                The manufacture of reconstituted wood‑based panels is a moderately emissions‑intensive activity.

Division 3       Electricity baseline for calculating partial exemption

730         Electricity baseline for product

                The electricity baseline for calculating the amount of a liable entity’s partial exemption in respect of the manufacture of reconstituted wood‑based panels is 0.372 MWh per tonne of raw reconstituted wood-based panel that:

                (a)    has a density of greater than 500 kg a cubic metre; and

               (b)    has individual wood particles or fibres with an average maximum dimension of no more than 30 mm; and

                (c)    is produced by carrying on the emissions-intensive trade-exposed activity; and

               (d)    is of saleable quality.

Note   Saleable quality is defined in regulation 22C.
