ECOR panels consist of recycled cellulose fibers sourced from local residual flows from the city, agriculture or industrial processes. The standard panels are 100% recycled paper and cardboard. These panels are designed in various shapes so they can be used in all kinds of ways indoors and, when provided with a coating, also outdoors.
This ECOR standard panel is made from 100% recycled cardboard and paper from a local facility in the Limburg region
The production process
- The production process depends on the residual materials streams used, the received raw material may need to undergo additional pre-treatment to extract the cellulose fibers.
- Once the fibers enter the process, only water is added to the mixture to make a wet panel at first.
- Then, with pressure and heat, the final ECOR panel is produced.
The ECOR standard panels are developed to be applied in various ways: as marketing materials, packaging, interior design materials and/or building materials.
- The ECOR panels have a clean production process, in which VOCs and toxic glues are involved. Therefore, no heavy special environmental and discharge permits are needed.
- ECOR panels support circular business models or initiatives that maintain materials and products in use for as long as possible through, for instance, reuse, remanufacturing and repurposing.
- Zero waste production is fostered as the cutting losses from previous production becomes input for the next panels production, which can be both recycled and refurbished
- Valorize cellulose-based residual streams, which are sourced from bio-based feedstocks considered a waste material stream from e.g. harvesting or industry processes
- Contribute to a better and healthier world, phasing out waste
