Acoustic panels with negative carbon footprint nominated for Green Product Award

16:e dec. 2021

The new Troldtekt® acoustic panels based on the greener cement type FUTURECEM™ have been nominated for the Green Product Award 2022. The global award honours innovative and sustainable solutions that shift the market in a green direction. Until 31 January 2022, anyone can vote for their favourite.

“Let’s design the future together.” This is the slogan of the global Green Product Award. A total of 100 products have been nominated across 12 categories. One of these is the new FUTURECEM-based Troldtekt acoustic panel, which is entered in the Building Components category. 

FUTURECEM is a patented cement type with a 30 per cent smaller carbon footprint than traditional cement. The wood, which is the other raw material in Troldtekt acoustic panels, absorbs CO2 as the trees grow in the Danish forests. And since production at Troldtekt’s own factory takes place using renewable energy, the new acoustic panels’ total carbon footprint ends up being negative in terms of the raw materials used, transport and the manufacturing of the products.

“The new acoustic panels will be available for delivery from February 2022. The fact that they have already been nominated for an international sustainability award shows that there is a place for them in the market. The construction sector cannot reduce its way out of the climate crisis, so solutions that absorb more CO2 than they emit are needed,” says Tina Snedker Kristensen, Head of Sustainability and Communications at Troldtekt A/S.
