Title: Pallet recovery, repair and remanufacturing in a changing industry: 1992 to 2006

Author: Araman, Philip; Groom, Les;

Date: 2010

Source: Pallet Enterprise 22-27

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: In a previously published Pallet Enterprise article (Material Use and Production Changes in the U.S. Wood Pallet and Container Industry: 1992 to 2006, June 2009), we provided the results of a series of studies that investigated the use of new wood by the pallet and container industry. As we mentioned in the article, the use of new wood is only one of the changes in raw material use affecting the industry. Trends in the use of recovered wood materials may be more significant than changes in the use of new wood. In this article we seek to provide a more complete picture of wood sources and use in the industry by documenting trends in recovery, repair, and remanufacturing activity.

Publication Notes:

  • We recommend that you also print this page and attach it to the printout of the article, to retain the full citation information.
