100% ADDED VALUE
OF EVERY TREE
Most of the raw material processed in our factories today grew up in our forests for 80-100 years. By removing the tree trunk from the forest, we take responsibility for ensuring that this raw material is used in a meaningful and sustainable manner. We live up to this responsibility by adding 100% of the tree to value creation and thus creating a completely closed value creation cycle.
Our raw material comes exclusively from sustainably managed forests. Short transport routes and environmentally friendly logistics are our priority.
OPTIMUM CUTTING PATTERN
We also rely on precise and, above all, environmentally friendly process technologies in our production facilities. By measuring the sections in 3D, the most rewarding cutting pattern is created individually for each log. Each log is thus cut in such a way as to minimize unnecessary sawmill by-products.
RETTENMEIER® ORGANIC FUELS
No chip is left behind. The sawing by-products (wood chips, sawdust and wood shavings) that arise during the sawing and planing process are used to produce wood briquettes and pellets. These are CO2-neutral energy sources because when they are burned they only release as much CO2 as the trees absorbed while they were growing.
The sawn timber produced in the sawmill is then subjected to further added value in our numerous refining systems. This is how rough-sawn, planed or impregnated slats, planed goods, profiled timber, decking, solid wood panels and much more are created.
