EN 16449:2014 (E) 4 Introduction By the process of photosynthesis, growing trees absorb (sequester) atmospheric carbon dioxide which is then, together with the release of some of the oxygen back into the atmosphere, incorporated, within the cambium, into the cells of the tree as both wood and bark. The absorbed carbon dioxide is effectively fixed in the wood as biogenic carbon. When using wood, that biogenic carbon is transferred to the product system. Wood products therefore constitute a pool (reservoir) of biogenic carbon for the duration of their service lifetime as those products. At end-
