Troldtekt cement-bonded wood wool panels can be composted and returned to nature as a soil conditioner. The cement in Troldtekt panels has a high lime content, which helps to neutralise the acids produced during composting. The wood in the Troldtekt panels is organic material, and helps to prevent the compost from compacting, thereby enhancing oxygenation during the composting process. In this way, carbon and nutrients are recirculated in the biological cycle.
Cradle to Cradle certification ensures that the materials in Troldtekt acoustic panels are defined in detail and do not contain harmful substances. Therefore, Troldtekt production waste can be returned to nature without any problem.
In the past, we handled our production waste as a single waste fraction. However, in order to derive the greatest possible value from the resources in our production waste, we are now separating the waste into several different fractions, which are utilised in various ways. This approach enables us to test and try out different solutions in both the biological and the technical cycle. The long-term aim is for a number of these solutions to be rolled out to include building site and demolition waste, including old Troldtekt panels (end of life).
