For Wood Wool, BAUX has carefully selected the world’s leading cement supplier in terms of sustainability. An advanced system for Carbon Dioxide Capturing is in place, ensuring that CO2 emissions from the manufacturing limestone heating process are absorbed and re-captured in porous stone materials.
Once installed, BAUX Acoustic Wood Wool panels also capture CO2 from the surrounding air in a reactive process called carbonation. The limestone in the cement reverts back to its original state when CO2 is collected. Independent tests show that, thanks to its open material structure, BAUX Acoustic Wood Wool is able to carbonate as much as 70% of the CO2 that is emitted during the manufacturing process.
All material waste generated from the manufacturing of Acoustic Pulp is recycled back into the production process and re-used again. All water used is built into a closed circular system and recycled. The only emission from production is a tiny amount of pure and clean water vapour that is emitted as the material dries.
BAUX wood fibres are FSC® and PEFCTM certified –– guaranteeing that they can be traced back to responsible forestry operations. The wood is collected from the Swedish forest in the direct surroundings of the factory in order to minimise negative CO2 emissions caused by longer transport distances. The small amount of wood waste that is generated as a result of production is taken care of—80% is used to heat the factory and drying plant. No waste is produced from the timber log.

This means that we have a 70% reduction from the total CO2 that stem from the Wood Wool cement production.
The manufacturing process is 100% sustainable and highly technological. The cellulose mix is formed inside a 3D mould with a powerful vacuum method and dried under high pressure. The surface is nano-perforated using an advanced laser technique. All material waste is recycled back into the production process and re-used again. All water used is built into a closed circular system and recycled. The only emission from production is a tiny amount of pure and clean water vapour that is released as the material dries.
