Producing less waste allows for a higher level of raw materials to be kept in the loop. Wood Loop is a take-back system that works with reverse logistics. Because we process it as returns, it is not waste and can be used by normal retailers. Because Wood Loop is a digital platform we connect all participants with retailers and producers.

Recycling residual wood from the interior design and furniture industry easily and affordably. Royal CBM, trade association for interior construction and furniture industry, is making that idea a reality. Innovation advisor Dirk van Deursen is enthusiastic about Wood Loop: "This project is going like clockwork."
From waste to raw materials
The Netherlands wants to be fully circular by 2050, and in order to do so it must already use 50 percent fewer natural raw materials by 2030. The Dutch furniture sector consumes a lot of wood: 635 kilotons per year. As much as 20 percent of this is already lost during the production process. This mainly involves board material: MDF and chipboard. Every year, these 100 kilotons of residual wood, released as production waste, are burned. Van Deursen: "So the potential environmental gain is 100 kilotons per year. A gigantic amount."
