Reinventing the flooring market
Bjelin, as one of the world's largest flooring producers has set a production target of 10 million square meters of flooring per year.
Using conventional production methods, an oak can yield approximately 40 square meters of traditional parquet flooring. With Bjelin’s Woodura-technology, the same oak yields 400 square meters of cured wood.
In addition, less waste is created with Bjelin’s process. In traditional parquet manufacturing, 65% of the raw material is used for parquet flooring while the rest is used as fuel. Bjelin’s technology for producing cured wood utilizes the waste for filling material for ceramic composite and cured wood. The minimal amount of residue still left is turned into pellets which heats the factories.
