Abstract：In order to understand carbon emissions from wooden building materials produced in digital and intelligent factories and to provide ground references and benchmarks for carbon reduction strategies, a life-cycle assessment (LCA) was conducted in this study to quantify the carbon footprints of main wooden building materials. The results show that the carbon footprints (per unit mass:kg CO2e/kg) for a wood floor tile, a wood door, and a wood door frame are 1.21, 1.26, and 0.47, respectively. The carbon footprints of the floor tile and the door are greater than their domestic counterparts in the literature. The raw materials and production processes are the main sources of carbon emissions for wooden building materials, accounting for 54.74%~77.47% and 18.57%~38.94% of the total carbon emissions, respectively, while the carbon emissions during transportation and waste gas treatment process account for less than 9% of the total carbon emissions. The Monte Carlo simulations show a relatively low uncertainty of the calculated carbon emissions in this study. Digital and intelligent factories could potentially reduce carbon emissions in the future by procuring low-carbon raw materials, optimizing the product designs, improving the energy efficiency of equipment, and using clean energy like solar and wind.
