Troldtekt & Environment

Case 2019: Troldtekt leading the call for more FSC®-certified forests

Active participation in FSC Week, presentations at WWF Denmark’s forest conference and at FSC Denmark’s anniversary event.

These are some of the activities in which Troldtekt was involved in 2019 through our partnership with FSC Denmark.

Our two organisations have also joined forces in the media with a call for more certified forests.

Case 2019: Sustainable laboratory opens in Berlin

Troldtekt acoustic solutions have been installed at the world’s first C2C LAB, which opened in Berlin in autumn 2019.

The renovated building serves as an educational centre, NGO office and a ‘living laboratory’ for Cradle to Cradle-certified building materials.

Case 2019: Sustainable offices for green think-tank

The green, liberal think-tank Fores in Sweden is a bridge-builder between politics, research and the business community. On arriving for meetings and events at Fores’s Stockholm office, visitors are met by sustainable elements from floor to ceiling.

And here Troldtekt’s design solutions play a key role.

Case 2018: Responsible production and a better life on land

Troldtekt supports the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. We have decided to focus on the two goals where we can make the biggest difference. In 2018, this resulted in a new and energy-efficient factory line and increased focus on FSC®-certified wood (FSC®C115450).

Case 2018: Ready with answers about sustainable points

In 2018, two Troldtekt employees completed the DGNB Consultant training programme. This means that we are now even better able to advise architects and clients on certifying sustainable buildings.

Case 2018: Printed matter with a green footprint

The past decade has been an uphill struggle for the printing industry. One of the companies to have survived is KLS PurePrint, which now produces Troldtekt’s printed matter. The company has managed to keep going thanks to its increased environmental focus.

Case 2017: Troldtekt supports the goals for a sustainable world

UN member countries have adopted 17 common goals to ensure the balancing of the environmental and economic dimensions of sustainable development. Troldtekt is focusing on two goals in particular, and has helped to inspire other companies.

Case 2017: Troldtekt goes for full FSC® certification

Troldtekt is increasing the proportion of sustainable FSC-certified wood used in production, and is now able to supply products which are ‘FSC 100%’-certified (FSC®C115450). At the same time, Troldtekt has phased out PEFC certification in order to focus on the FSC label.

Case 2017: Environmental approval provides systematic overview

As a manufacturing company, Troldtekt must document compliance with many different requirements to ensure that it does not negatively impact the environment. For example, in relation to noise, air pollution, waste management and wastewater.

Case 2017: At the forefront of sewer separation

In connection with the expansion of production in Troldhede, Troldtekt has decided to separate rainwater and wastewater on the entire factory site. It took some detective work to map the old pipelines, but significant benefits have been achieved in the form of a reduced load on the local wastewater treatment plant and less impact on the aquatic environment.

Case 2017: Can mountains of bark be used for furniture?

During a visit to Troldtekt, Tommy Mosgaard Jensen was inspired by the large piles of bark, a by-product from production. Completely in line with Troldtekt’s Cradle to Cradle approach, he decided to investigate whether the bark can create new value as a material for furniture production.

Case 2016: Systematic waste sorting benefits the environment and our business

In Troldtekt’s production, there is now even more focus on ensuring that cardboard and plastic do not end up in the same container. A new sorting system means that it is easier for Troldtekt to ensure that the waste is handled correctly following disposal, and that as much as possible is recycled.

Case 2016: New painting facility results in less waste and greater job satisfaction

A fully automated painting facility has reduced the amount of paint which Troldtekt wastes by more than 70 per cent. The hall and the new technology have given the working environment a lift.

Case 2015: Cement-bonded wood wool waste becomes a new resource

Troldtekt cement-bonded wood wool is made from the natural material wood, and cement extracted from Danish mineral resources and can therefore be returned to nature as compost.

A new take-back scheme means that Troldtekt waste now becomes an environmental resource.

Case 2015: Cement with clear environ-mental objectives

Cement production accounts for most of Troldtekt’s carbon footprint. It is therefore vital that Aalborg Portland, which delivers all the cement for Troldtekt’s acoustic panels, works strategically to reduce its environmental impact.

Case 2015: New drying oven uses half the energy

A new, high-efficiency drying oven enables Troldtekt to dry its acoustic panels considerably faster and with a significantly lower energy consumption than previously. This benefits both the environment and the company’s bottom line.
