Timber waste-to-energy: sustainable solutions 

Wood waste is an unavoidable by-product in the manufacturing of timber products. However, at Urban Front, we take our commitment to sustainability very seriously. We operate a comprehensive timber purchasing policy to minimise waste. And we have invested in advanced technologies and processes to efficiently manage and utilise our wood waste.

Using the combination of a briquette machine and our DEFRA clean air exempt biomass burner, we are able to process all of our wood dust, wood shavings and wood offcuts. This innovative approach allows us to convert these waste materials into a valuable energy source. 

By using them to heat up our manufacturing premises, we not only reduce the amount of waste sent to landfills but also decrease our reliance on conventional gas energy.

The result? A reduction of our CO2 footprint by an impressive 22.2 tonnes per year. 

At Urban Front, we take pride in our commitment to environmental stewardship and strive to be at the forefront of sustainable manufacturing practices in the timber industry.
