Wood in construction and interior design
Against the global background of a climate emergency, laws are changing, meaning that building sustainability is no longer optional. Wood and its derivatives are positioned as natural and efficient allies in this (r)evolution.
In 2050, the Earth's population will reach 9.7 billion, according to an estimate by the United Nations. This growth will require an increase in the pace of construction both inside and outside cities, a challenge involving a rapid shift in the selection of construction materials, which will be key to guarantee the future of the planet.
Sonae Arauco's wood solutions are an ally in the challenge of climate change
Sonae Arauco’s wood-based panels:
are a valuable alternative to solid wood
due to their dimensional flexibility, allow the manufacture of versatile products with different shapes and sizes as needed, as well as easy and quick installation
have a positive effect on global warming by improving the energy efficiency of buildings
function as carbon stores, with an active role in mitigating CO2 emissions
can be recycled and transformed into new products at the end of their useful life, as part of a continuous recycling cycle
The AGEPAN® SYSTEM is the integrated system of sustainable wood solutions for construction at Sonae Arauco and is available with FSC® and PEFC™ certification.
Its portfolio includes insulating fibre boards, DWD boards and OSB ECOBOARD products of high quality, functionality and technical performance for use on roofs, walls, floors and ceilings.
In the future, the AGEPAN® SYSTEM will play a key role in affirming wood solutions in sustainable construction projects
The AGEPAN® SYSTEM solutions have a positive impact in economic terms, since the construction period is faster. The economic advantages are also reflected in the technical performance of AGEPAN® SYSTEM solutions which, even with thin walls, offer high levels of insulation and lasting performance. At the end of their useful life, these solutions can be recycled and transformed into new products, integrating a continuous recycling cycle.
Furniture and Interior Design
Wood-based panels are the basis for everything Sonae Arauco does and are the most flexible, sustainable and functional alternative to solid wood. More efficient use of resources and greater dimensional flexibility make it possible to create solutions adapted to people's needs. Sonae Arauco is proud to develop and produce alternatives to solid wood products for an increasing number of uses, such as home and office furniture, kitchen cupboards and bathroom cabinets, doors, walls and decorative products.
All our wood-based panels are available with additional properties and comply with the strictest environmental requirements with regard to formaldehyde emissions.
At a time of increasing concerns about sustainability, Sonae Arauco has introduced the Ecoboard concept. The first and only company on the market to present a product line with no-added formaldehyde resins in its PB, MDF and OSB. Less formaldehyde means improved air quality and a healthy life.
Both Particleboard panels (PB) and Medium Density Fibreboard panels (MDF) play a vital role in Innovus, the Sonae Arauco brand that offers complete solutions for use in interior decoration projects.
From the decorative ranges of Melamine panels (MF) and High Pressure Laminates (HPL) to its faithful replica of wood in the Innovus Essence range and all of the colour possibilities offered by Innovus Coloured MDF, there is a range of solutions that adapt perfectly to people's lives.
