Abstract : The construction industry's use of building materials and energy has risen dramatically in recent years. GHG (greenhouse gas) emissions, global warming, resource depletion, pollution, and ecological imbalance are linked to energy consumption. It is important to assess existing construction processes, methods, techniques, and materials and choose the one that uses the least amount of energy. The total of all the energy required to produce any goods or services is referred to as embodied energy. Research on the embodied energy of building materials will drive towards the manufacture of low embodied energy materials; their selection by the structural designers and constructors, thereby reducing energy consumption and carbon dioxide emissions. The primary objective of this study is to determine the total embodied energy of engineered wood flooring. The system boundary considered in this study includes the energy and material inputs from raw material extraction, transportation, and plant production process. The data obtained from a production unit is used to determine the amount of energy consumed at each production stage of engineered wooden floors. Finally, the product embodied energy of engineered wooden floors is compared with the reported values of other types of flooring materials.
