EGGER Romania has invested EUR 23.9 million in a recycling installation at its plant in Radauti and in the EGGER Timberpark platforms of collecting the recycled wood.

The collection division of recycled wood and the recycling installation of wood from Romania are the company’s solution for a secondary, sustainable life cycle of materials based on wood.

„The recycling wood quantities which were elaborated and recycled in 2016 by EGGER Romania replaced the potential of usage of 35,000 hectares of forests. We have a unique wood recycling installation in Romania, dedicated and used exclusively for this purpose. At European level, EGGER uses in average 30 percent recycled wood for the production of  panels based on wood. Last year, EGGER Romania reached a level of approximately 8 percent and in the half of 2017, we’ll reach 15 percent of recycled wood and we estimate a share of 17 percent for the second half of the year. (…) Our objective for 2020 is to recycle more than 150,000 tonnes of materials based on wood annually, equivalent to more than 30 percent of the volume of wood from forest works, ” said Ioan Banciu, technical director of EGGER Eastern Europe division.
