The Pfeifer Group pursues the strategy of 100% added value from the raw material wood. And also a resource-saving circular economy.
But how does it work exactly?
For our products we use conifer wood from sustainable managed forests of Central Europe. The position of our sites next to forested regions ensures short transport routes.
In our saw mills begins the finishing cycle: The first step consists in the debarking of round timber. Then we process it through optimized video editing into as much as possible sawn timber
Beside sawn & profiled timber, also further wood material are generated: construction timber, single- & three-ply panels, formwork beams, glulam and shuttering panels and packaging timber.
The production process generates wood chips and sawdust. We turn them into pressboard blocks. They find a further appropriate and
CO2binding application in modern wooden pallets.
Sawdust is turned also into CO2neutral timber pellet and briquettes. This high efficient energy source produces just as much CO2 as absorbed by trees during their growth.
The concept of cascade use is implemented consequently by us: Chips are processed in modern biomass power plants in CO2neutral heating. Part of this energy dries our timber. The resting heating drives as steam our turbines to produce power. This is fed as green power into the public network.
