Rundvirke Lifecycle

Rundvirke Poles’ unique, environmentally friendly recycling system for discarded, impregnated wood.

At our plants in Kälarne and Ludvika we receive discarded impregnated material. We also handle transport to our recycling stations. When timber is received it is checked to determine the type of impregnating agent and the content level of substances such as arsenic and chromium. The timber is separated for reuse or for fuel production. Some material is re-used for special products, such as piling wood, two-edged blocks and anchoring timber. Other material is chipped and burned in heating plants.
