Produce boards more cost-effectively with alternative raw materials
Reduce your material costs by using alternative raw materials, and increase the sustainability of your production at the same time. Produce high-quality boards from inexpensive recycling wood, straw and bagasse, or fast-growing woods and annual plants. Our ideas can help remove your dependence on the fresh wood supply in your region.
Our solution for your raw material
Recycling wood is a raw material created during industrial production as well as being available in large quantities through urban waste. However, it contains impurities that impact the quality of boards. Our wood recycling plants enable you to reliably eliminate these impurities. This gives you the flexibility to replace fresh wood with recycled wood without loss of quality, and to produce more cost-effectively.

Rice, sorghum and wheat straw
In the past, straw was burned in large quantities in the fields, especially in less industrially developed regions. Protect the environment and benefit from this cost-effective alternative by producing boards from a mixture of wood and straw or 100% straw.
Bagasse is a by-product of sugar production. The fibrous residues of the pressed sugar cane are ideally suited as a substitute for wood in board production. Our complete plants allow you to achieve comparable board properties as with conventional particleboard made of pure wood.
Jute and flax shives
Jute and flax are annual plants whose fibers are mainly used for the production of textiles and packaging materials. The so-called shives, wooden refuse removed during the processing of flax and jute, are an ideal raw material for lightweight particleboard. Take advantage of our process know-how to produce lightweight boards with high bending strengths based on jute and flax.
The stalks of cotton plants left over from the extraction of cotton fibers can be used as a substitute for fresh wood in the production of MDF and particleboard. Choose cotton stalks as an economical wood alternative to increase the profitability of your panel production.
Bamboo sawdust and other residues are a frequently used raw material in particleboard plants. Our solutions enable you to also use chopped bamboo logs in MDF production. Additionally, our strander technology lets you produce OSB strands from bamboo.
As palm trees grow, the lower palm fronds fall off over time and make an ideal renewable raw material for various applications. Once stripped of their leaves, the stems can be processed into wood-based panels. Benefit from the flexibility of low-cost palm fronds to produce particleboard, MDF and OSB boards that fully comply with common board standards.
