Quadpack Wood opens biomass plant

By investing in sustainable production, global beauty packaging supplier Quadpack wants to have a positive impact on society and the environment.
Quadpack Wood takes a big step towards carbon neutrality, thanks to a new plant powered by biomass. Quadpack Wood will now use its own offcuts to generate energy for its dryers, heating and cooling, eliminating its dependence on fossil fuels.
Quadpack's sustainability strategy encompasses not only its products and people, but also its processes. The biomass-fueled plant is the result of a long-term project to reduce the plant's carbon emissions. After an investment of 2 million euros and nine months of work, the new facility places Quadpack Wood at the forefront of innovative and sustainable manufacturing.
As a pioneer in wood components for beauty packaging, Quadpack Wood works for sustainability throughout the chain, from procurement to disposal. In 2016, a state-of-the-art regenerative thermal oxidation unit was installed in the plant to treat and eliminate emissions of volatile organic compounds, thereby exceeding environmental regulations. In 2017, the plant began using electricity from renewable sources - a successful initiative that has since been implemented at all of Quadpack's manufacturing sites.
All raw materials come from sustainable forests, mainly in Europe, to ensure traceability. In this area, Quadpack Wood is certified by the FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council) and the PEFC ™ (Program for the Endorsement of Forest Certification). The group's combined efforts in sustainability have earned it a silver medal from EcoVadis, a prestigious corporate social responsibility assessment body.
Its plans for the future go even further - such as increasing the share of renewable energy by investing in solar panels - as the company is committed to making a positive impact on the planet and on society.
