With an increasing focus on a bio-based economy, solid wood is now more sought after than ever. Encouraged by government policy, we are gradually distancing ourselves from a linear economy and moving to a circular economy. This transition has even further enhanced the popularity of solid wood among architects and is giving the use of wood in buildings a huge boost.
White paper solid wood
But, although this recent development in the economy is certainly relevant, there's a lot more to it. A unique relationship between man and wood has existed for many thousands of years. The recent developments and the existing relationship have inspired Derako to write a White paper. The White paper describes the special relationship between man and solid wood. In the document, you will find a lot of knowledge regarding the properties of solid wood, but the document also provides necessary information on the unique, sustainable features of the product wood.
Natural material creates green buildings
For thousands of years, wood has been a source of inspiration for art and architecture. It is one of the oldest and most versatile materials available to mankind. Wood is a renewable and therefore infinite raw material. With its authentic features, wood ensures a natural, typical and warm environment in both interior and exterior applications. Wood is a natural product; it is very durable and will last decades. Industrial wood processing has very limited environmental impact and wood itself stores CO2. But apart from all this, as a processed raw material it is simply extremely beautiful.
