Reclaimed wood

The disposal of wood is regulated by the German Reclaimed Wood Directive, and is now classed as a renewable raw material, as well as a renewable energy source.

Here, four different quality categories of reclaimed wood are looked at: non-treated (AI), treated (AII, AIII) and contaminated (AIV). It main sources are from the construction industry, furniture manufacturing and as a packaging device for various commercial and industrial companies. Nehlsen has a licence to collect and transport reclaimed wood from all four categories, whereupon it is recycled in our own waste treatment plants, either through material or thermal recycling.
