Transportation

13% of our total CO2 emissions

Reducing transportation emissions as much as possible

Transportation stands for 13% of our total emissions. That’s why it’s really important that we do what we can to reduce the emissions as much as possible when we deliver products to all our clients, no matter where they are in the world.

We aim to send our products while generating as few emissions as possible. When we ship the raw material to our factories, we use a boat. When we ship products to clients, we use a truck. We minimize air travel!

The CO2 emissions generated during transportation are, in general, fairly low. This is mainly due to our smart logistics structure and the fact that we manufacture products as close to the customer as possible

Sweden, our home market, has the best result with only 0.16 kg CO2 emissions per m2 produced per panel during transportation.

Our biggest markets have the lowest emissions

Our key markets (marked in orange) where the majority of our customers are located, also have the lowest CO2 emission values per m2.

BAUX Acoustic Wood Wool

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.

Raw Materials

  • Wood cement and water.
  • We use locally harvested FSC certified pine and spruce from Swedish forests.
  • We use 100% natural materials with no additives.
  • Our cement provider, Cementa, has been recognised as the world’s most sustainable cement factory. Read more about this under ‘Installation & End of life.’

Transport

  • From factories to the end client, including samples and the final product.
  • We aim to produce as few emissions as possible during the transportation of products.
  • We transport products to clients on the ground by truck, and rarely use air transportation.
  • We have an efficient raw materials logistics solution that provides materials to the USA and Australia.

Installation & End of life

  • Installed Wood Wool products lead to reduced energy consumption due to their heat accumulating performance.
  • All Wood Wool products have a long life and 50 year warranty.
  • Wood Wool captures a significant amount of CO2 from the atmosphere, leading to reduced Co2 emissions.

% of carbon capture: -70%

This means that we have a 70% reduction from the total CO2 that stem from the Wood Wool cement production.


BAUX Acoustic Pulp

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.

Raw Materials

  • Cellulose, potato starch, wheat bran and plant wax.
  • We use organic and locally harvested cellulose and the wheat bran is a rest product.
  • The wood we derive our cellulose from is FSC
