New Troldtekt acoustic panel among tomorrow’s sustainable materials

Troldtekt based on FUTURECEM™ has been selected for a materials exhibition at the ORGATEC trade fair in Cologne. The ‘Materials4Future’ exhibition highlights innovative materials that reduce the climate footprint of interior design.

Ceilings, walls, furniture and other materials for interior design play an important role in the transitioning of the construction industry to a circular economy. The ORGATEC trade fair in Cologne, which is taking place from 25 to 29 October and expected to attract more than 56,000 visitors, will focus on the office of the future.

Part of the fair is the approx. 400-square-metre special Materials4Future exhibition, where visitors can experience 120 innovative and sustainable materials for interior design. The organisers have carefully selected the materials – and one of them is the new Troldtekt acoustic panel based on the cement type FUTURECEM, which was launched on the market in early 2022.

Carbon-negative production

At the fair, visitors can experience a Troldtekt v-line acoustic panel, which is manufactured using CO2-reduced FUTURECEM rather than traditional cement. The other raw material in the Troldtekt acoustic panels is certified spruce (FSC®C115450 and PEFC™).

The wood in the acoustic panels absorbs more CO2 while the trees are growing in Danish forests than is emitted during the production of FUTURECEM. And since Troldtekt uses 97.8 per cent renewable energy in the manufacture of its acoustic panels, Troldtekt based on FUTURECEM has an overall negative carbon footprint during production.     

The negative carbon footprint applies to phases A1-A3 of Troldtekt’s Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) covering raw material supply, raw material transport and the manufacture of the acoustic panels.

Earlier this year, Troldtekt based on FUTURECEM received a Green Product Award and a German Innovation Award. The solution has also been nominated for the prestigious German Sustainability Award 2023.
