Wood waste has two uses: recovery in the woodchip panelling industry, and energy recycling in heating. One ton of recycled wood saves 1.5m3 of wood, 700kg of coal, and 300 litres of fuel.
Wood waste is collected at wood treatment facilities, sorted, and then ground to different sized particles.
Impurities such as iron, non-ferrous elements, stones, plastic, or glass are then eliminated.
The pellets are screened and quality-controlled, before been used to make woodchip panels, work surfaces, treated tablets, isolation panels…
Every year, Paprec upcycles 200 000 tons of wood, which includes 300 000 pallets, in 25 factories. All sites are equipped with grinding units that can sort, grind, and purify the wood, according to very strict regulations and rigorous quality control.
