The EcoReFibre project, funded by Horizon Europe (May 2022 – April 2026), explores smart technologies to recycle post-consumer waste wood back into fibreboards and into novel building products.
EcoReFibre aims to increase available wood resources in Europe through recycling. The ambition is to substitute up to 25% of the virgin fibres currently used in the European fibreboard market. The project demonstrates how this upscaling of circular technologies can become possible.
5 highly promising pilots, involving leading panel manufacturers, are launched to demonstrate how Circular Economy approaches linked with innovative and digital-supported technologies will ensure the supply of secondary raw materials.
