The circle round

Wood dust that is released during our production when sawing and sanding our boards is used as a renewable heat source for our tumble dryers and presses. In this way we limit the environmental impact throughout the production process: from the supply of raw materials to the residual flow.

But we also want to offer a sustainable solution for non-reusable wood waste from society. To this end, we entered into a partnership with Aspiravi that has led to two power plants where we convert non-recoverable waste wood into green electricity and heat.

Nothing is lost

Thanks to a high-tech pre-cleaning process, we can process a lot of wood, which has already had a product life, into raw material for new chipboards. The wood that can no longer serve as a raw material is used to generate renewable energy.

Our own power plants convert non-recoverable wood into green electricity and heat. As a result, we can be sure that all the wood is used to maximum effect and that we can produce renewable energy at the end of the material cycle. This ensures that nothing of this natural raw material is lost. In this way we can also limit the use of fossil fuels.

Renewable energy

A&S, our first power plant established in 2010, converts around 500 tonnes of wood waste into green electricity every day. A&S, is directly connected to our production site Spano to supply our machines with green electricity. The power plant produces more green electricity than is consumed at Spano, so the surplus of renewable energy is fed into the grid. In this way, A&S not only contributes to the sustainability of our own energy consumption, but also that of families and other companies.

A&U has been active since April 2020. In addition to green electricity, A&U also produces green heat for our production site Bospan and for our distant neighbour Agristo. The heat is transported to Agristo via a 2.5 km long heat conduit. The electricity that we do not use ourselves is also fed into the grid here.
