Collect, recycle, reuse – striving for a zero-waste economy
Wood-based panel production is a great way to introduce and maintain the principles of the circular economy. That means we can bring back into production a material that has already been used. We create technological and business environment that allows us to introduce the recycled wood in a wider product portfolio. In the process of sourcing wood in our work, we have established clear priorities: 1st choice - recycled wood; 2nd choice - sawmill residue; 3rd choice - sustainable forestry wood.
The production process incorporates a new system of drying wood strands at natural low temperature and making maximum use of recycled wood, thus dramatically reducing CVOCs. The recycled material is cleaned, refined, analyzed and sorted. The rest of the material is used by our biomass cogeneration facilities and fully incorporated into the production process of the factory. In this way all the available material is utilised efficiently. Thanks to newly-built combined heat and power plants we not only cover our own heating needs but more importantly we generate considerable electrical power. So as well as delivering high quality product that is fully recyclable, we can also supply electricity. Through this circular economy concept we use recycled material to create a product that can itself be easily recycled and we also construct an entire technological “ecosystem” that benefits nature and society.
