Demolition wood from the central Norway region
Retura IR receives annually close to 60 000 tons of demolition wood from the central Norway region. The majority is used for incineration, and only a small fraction for particle boards. Demolition wood comes with significant challenges related to required specifications for sand, metal, and fines content.
The focus in this project is to utilize several analytical methods to document the most important impurities, which will enable Retura and customers to better evaluate their demolition wood in other products. Quality improvements in the demolition wood will also strengthen Retura’s position in the particle board market nationally and internationally.
