Product life cycle
Materials, production, transport, use and material reutilisation. Throughout the product life cycle, Troldtekt is committed to optimising resource consumption and processes to ensure that our acoustic solutions contribute added value.
This is the thinking behind the product life cycle underpinning Troldtekt’s Cradle to Cradle business strategy. And new initiatives are continuously being introduced in each of the five phases.
On this page, you can read about each of the phases in Troldtekt’s product life cycle. See also how our actions at each stage align with the criteria for Cradle to Cradle and the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
More on the topic
Troldtekt acoustic panels are made from wood and cement. At Troldtekt we only use FSC® (FSC®C115450) and PEFC™-certified wood from Danish forests. And we are in the process of replacing traditional cement with a new CO2-reduced cement type.
We have invested heavily in new technology at our factory in Troldhede in recent years. This has resulted in lower energy consumption as well as an improved working environment.
Although transport accounts for a relatively small proportion of the environmental impact of Troldtekt acoustic panels, we have a strong focus on minimising emissions from transport. Short distances also ensure a high level of security of supply.
Most north Europeans spend 80-90 per cent of their time indoors. At Troldtekt, we believe that acoustic comfort and a healthy indoor climate without harmful chemicals are of key importance in buildings.
At Troldtekt, we sort our production waste into a number of fractions to create new value. Cement-bonded wood wool can be returned to the biological cycle as a nutrient or to the technical cycle as a raw material in cement production.
