Adhesives for Sustainable Development

Adhesives enable wooden structural elements for innovative construction technologies, thus saving energy and reducing CO2 emissions by the use of renewable and recyclable materials. 

Posted Apr 24, 2018
  • Reducing CO2 emissions and reusability at the end of the service life are important drivers in sustainable development. Timber is a natural, renewable, and thus more sustainable building material. 
  • Cross-laminated timber (CLT) panels enable significant volumes of wood to be used in structural construction applications.
  • Special adhesives are crucial for the production of the wooden elements. 
  • The adhesives and the production of the elements are strictly quality controlled and certified. This contributes to an expected life span of more than 30 years.
