Abstract

A computer and trading slip assisted carbon flow calculation system was developed. The system is composed of a computer tool that can calculate the carbon sink and CO2 emission of wooden products. Carbon trading slips were used as to transmit information necessary to calculate the carbon sink and CO2 emission. Different amount of carbon sink was given to the wooden products originally from the sustainable forests and those originally from the non- sustainable forests. Case studies were conducted and the practicality of the tool was verified.
