Win-win on waste
Did you know that in our factory where we produce flex and glue vinyl flooring, we use wood dust waste from our laminate plant next door to generate green heat for our production line? Thanks to this internal energy we are able to cover 70% of our site’s heat requirements, and avoid CO2 emissions of 25,000 tons per year.
Investment in wind energy
Our Rigid vinyl flooring factory runs on green energy, generated by three of our own windmills. These produce an annual total of 12,600 MWh of green energy, equating to the annual energy consumption of 3,490 European households.
Extra efforts in renewable energy
Our efforts in green energy do not stop there. Unilin Group – as Pergo’s parent company – has also invested in two biomass plants to transform wood dust and non-recyclable wood waste from the group’s operations into renewable energy. We also use energy from solar panels in our production plants. In total, about half of our group’s production is now powered by renewable energy.
