Cork trees save up to 30 percent more CO2 than other trees
With an area of approximately 2.3 million hectares, the Mediterranean cork-oak forests absorb approximately 13 million tons of CO2 per year. Portugal's cork trees bind approximately five percent of the country's CO2 emissions. The bark of the cork oak is harvested every nine years and processed with little waste into various cork products.
The cork oak is one of the biotope's 150 endemic species. It is the only tree on earth, whose bark can be removed without harming the tree. A cork oak whose bark is harvested regularly binds even more than three times as much CO2 as an unused cork oak. Cork oak forests provide refuge for endangered species such as the Iberian lynx, of which only about 100 animals are left, the Spanish imperial eagle or the monk vulture. The Algerian and Tunisian cork forests are the habitat of the endangered Barbary red deer.
There are many excellent possibilities for recycling used bottle corks. The recycled material can be used, for example, for building insulation or for floor coverings. The cork oak habitats are among the biologically richest in the world and are listed under the EU Habitats Directive in the Natura 2000 network. Of all the forest habitats, they contain among the world's highest levels of biodiversity. Cork can be dropped off at any public recycling center.
