We reduce our environmental impact by using the latest technology and the development of the production process, which enables us to make more end products – Kerto® LVL (laminated veneer lumber), birch plywood and spruce plywood products – from smaller amounts of raw material.
Efficient use of side streams
All raw materials used in production are used efficiently, and we are making efforts to further improve resource efficiency. Production side streams are considered valuable raw materials for new products and for renewable energy production. Currently, we utilise 96% of production side streams. Side products like sawdust, wood chips and planer shavings are sold to the pulp and paper industry. Bark from round wood debarking is used to produce renewable energy for our own and for the community’s use.
