Pioneer in recycling

Our contribution to the future

Ecological

100 % of the wood we use comes from sustainable forestry.

Recyclable

Old products from megawood® are 100 % recycled.

The material of today is our raw material of tomorrow!

Our motto

Endless material cycle - without additional consumption of resources

... and we make sure that they are not burned. Instead of being processed into pellets, we sustainably recycle the chips produced by the planing and sawing industry. This means that no tree is felled for us and the natural fibers from 100% sustainable European cultivation can be reused several times in our wood-based material.

That is why we take our products back at the end of their long life cycle and incorporate them 100% in the production of new megawood® articles.

Because the material of today is our raw material of tomorrow! This recycling management emphasizes our claim to an ecologically sustainable wood-based material and meets our responsibility towards future generations.

Wind power rotor blades as a source of raw material

For us, innovation means qualitative progress. The sustainable securing our raw materials, as well as the procurement practices themselves, are the focus of our growth strategy. In order to meet the increasing demand for GCC wood-based products in the future, without additional consumption of natural raw materials, and to be able to continue to grow responsibly in the market, we are already thinking about the day after tomorrow in our material cycle.

The use of used wind turbine rotor blades as a source of raw materials is a further, future-oriented step.Almost all raw material components of a rotor blade can be recycled and incorporated into megawood® GCC without any loss of quality. This saves valuable, existing materials that perform well in terms of replastability and material health from thermal destruction or downcycling into lower-quality products, while at the same time avoiding CO2 emissions

The DELTA decking board from megawood® will meet precisely these requirements in the future.

Support us in this!

Join us in shaping a healthy future for generations to come. In order to transfer our material into the material cycle, we need your support. If you want to return your megawood® products after their long service life, you can arrange this through our recycling dealers.

It is even easier by registering your property. We will contact you in due course and clarify the take-back with you. In this way, you take part in ecological and responsible building.

The property and contact details provided during registration will only be used for the purpose of taking back our material. We welcome photos of your garden projects with links to our social media channels or for publication in our reference list. Please feel free to contact us by email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..


How does the recirculation work?

If you no longer like the processed products made of our material or if you no longer need residual material, we will take back e.g. your used megawood® decking floorboards, fence elements, construction wood, rhombus profiles or facade panels free of charge. Please return the products to your megawood® dealer with recycling take-back. You will find them in our online dealer search marked with the Icon Recyclingsymbol.

In a recycling process developed by us, the old megawood® products are reprocessed and made reusable. They can thus be returned to production as normal. In this way, your old megawood® material is turned into a new generation of environmentally friendly products from megawood®, which also meet our quality standards.

This process is unique worldwide in the field of wood-polymer materials and underlines our own high standards for an ecologically sustainable and innovative production of environmentally friendly products.

    Cradle to Cradle also at megawood®

    The approach for a consistent and integrated recycling economy was already designed in the late 1990s by the German chemist Prof. Michael Braungart and the US-American architect William McDonough.

    Raw material cycles play a central role within the Cradle to Cradle (C2C) concept. In the sense of "from origin to origin", consumer goods should be designed for a "strong biological cycle" and consumer goods for a "strong technical cycle". The aim is to use all materials in such a way that they can circulate continuously in cycles. In the certification process, products are evaluated according to such criteria as material health, recyclability, (use of) renewable energies, responsible use of water and social justice.

    Even in our entrepreneurial activities as well as in the development and production of our articles, we implement the philosophy of C2C from the very beginning. Additionally, we are working on an official C2C certification of our products.

    Within these categories, our GCC wood-based panel has been certified according to Cradle to Cradle Certified™*:

    *Version 3.1, Renewal 27 Aug 2022, with the exception of DELTA decking boards, more information on certification available at www.megawood.com/c2c
    If there is one thing that is definitely in our genes, it is the Cradle to Cradle® principle that each resource serves as a nutrient for a new life cycle. Cradle to Cradle® describes a cycle of materials in which products or raw materials circulate in recurring cycles “from the cradle to the cradle“.

    Our GCC (German Compact Composite) material has received the Cradle to Cradle Certified Gold award. This certification is awarded by the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute.
