«The global economy is now only 7.2% circular; and it’s getting worse year on year—driven by rising material extraction and use». CGR 2023 (circularity-gap.world)
We need a completely new approach to how we recycle and reuse waste wood. Just in Europe approximately 67-million-ton waste wood is generated every year, and 90% of is just incinerated.
We believe that the first step is recycling waste wood rather than burning it. Reducing deforestation reduces CO2 emissions directly. By reusing all waste wood possible for new products, we can make a difference to how we maintain a sustainable logging industry.
The climate changes should impact how we choose to reuse waste wood to a create circular economy and sustainability. Limited natural resources and a growing population keep putting pressure on the environment. In order to maintain natural resources for ourselves and future generations we need to be innovative in how we can create new raw materials from already produced wood products.
Eco Materials develops technology that converts waste wood into a range of new raw materials.
