EcoReFibre has developed a Circular Economy Approach to recycle waste wood back into fiberboards and into novel fibre products.
Together with market leaders, EcoReFibre will launch 5 indsustrial pilot projects.
Their goal is to sort and extract wood fines and fibers and convert them into valuable products.
Today we cannot recycle fibreboards into new fibreboards, which is why large anount of waste wood are still being burnt or even landfilled. There is a need to:
- develop and prove the commercially viable methods for recycling
- direct the post-consumer waste streams back into production sites
- promote a sustainable use of natural materials
- increase the industry's resilience in the context of international raw material markets.
