90% post-consumer wood
We also see the city as our forest and a source of raw materials. Where other wood-processing companies migrate to wooded areas, we remain anchored in one of the most urbanised areas of Western Europe. But cities are also a source of wood, the so-called “post-consumer wood”.
Society consumes a lot of wood in building applications, furniture,... This is good for the environment (wood is a renewable raw material) but also good for companies that want and dare to go a step further. Once the product life of this wood is over, it can be recycled into new raw material. Through far-reaching investments we have succeeded in converting this wood into a raw material for chipboard. In the meantime, we have succeeded in producing chipboard with more than 90% post-consumer wood. We will continue to invest in order to increase this percentage in the coming years.
