Bruce Lippke is a Professor Emeritus at the School of Environmental and Forest Science at the University of Washington. President Emeritus CORRIM (The Consortium for Research on Renewable Industrial Materials), a 20 member not for profit research consortium analyzing every environmental impact from using wood. CORRIM was created by mostly University members in 1996 and has developed a comprehensive life cycle database of all high volume wood products for the 4 major supply regions covering every stage of processing from forest growth through end uses such as housing construction. Recent data updating for the PNE and SE regions provides science based measurements of many opportunities to reduce environmental burdens including a hierarchy of the leverage for displacing fossil intensive products and storing carbon in wood products as major contributions to carbon mitigations.
