Project description

FORENDA operates in the wood processing industry. The project objective is to introduce a new process of vacuum drying of wood, which will help us achieve higher quality of wood products and to expand our customer base beyond the construction industry, targeting manufacturers of furniture and finishing components. In addition, we plan to launch pellet production in response to the high market interest in this product, resulting from the common replacement of furnaces with more environmentally friendly ones. Not all sawmill companies can produce pellets, as a high level of quality and purity of the raw material - i.e. sawdust - must be maintained. Therefore, we will cooperate with an accredited laboratory where our raw material will be tested on a regular basis. Introduction of the pellet production process will also serve to utilise our main waste product, i.e. sawdust. Thanks to the project implementation we will reuse as much as 7,500 tons of sawdust per year. The environmental effect will be enhanced by the installation of photovoltaic panels, which will reduce the demand for electricity from conventional sources and lower the company’s CO2 emissions by 42.42 tons a year. Under the project FORENDA will build a production and storage hall, and purchase pellet production line, vacuum dryer and wood convection dryer, band saw machine, telescopic loader and photovoltaic installation with a capacity of 120 kW.
