Wood and environment
To match the stricter requirements of the GPP (Green Public Procurement) which is the environmental policy tool envisaged for all Public Administrations.
In accordance with the Circular Economy and based on: the use of sustainable raw materials, operations with renewable raw energy, extension of the life span of the products, re-use and recycle of the materials at the end of their life. Our engagement is to turn waste into value and to reduce the dangerous emissions. Read more...
Every year we avoid 2.400 Tons CO2 emissions thanks to:
ZERO KM RAW MATERIALThe wood which is used to produce our products comes from PEFC Certified Forests that are subject to controlled taking and certified by the brand ICILA. This makes the difference with all the producers who use the raw materials carried by road from exotic Countries with the consequent air pollution and the CO2 emissions.
The Silver Fir (Abies Alba) is a wild plant with many advantages: among the conifers is the only essence without resin pockets, its fiber is compact and durable and allows an easy penetration of the treatment preservatives. This local essence is the main element for the manufacturing of the prefabricated houses and of the outdoor structures at Legnolandia. That’s why as well as that is widespread in the area of Dolomiti Friulane, according to Celtic legends, it offers serenity, strength and health to people who live nearby. Read more...
The thermal energy that we consume during our production operations comes from a modern biomass plant which is fed by wood that comes from the waste from the process. The burning of the wooden biomass closes a natural cycle which doesn’t increase the concentration of the CO2 in the air (greenhouse effect) This is the difference with the use of fossil fuel like carbon, gas or oil that release CO2 together with other pollutants like the nitrogen, sulphur oxides and fine dust.
We use electrical energy which comes from solar power plants and hydroelectric plants on our area with the complete reduction of the dangerous emissions. This plays the difference with those Companies which are linked to a National net of fossil fuel fired power plants which are real pollution sources.
RECYCLABILITY and RE-USE
During our production operations, we use almost always recycled and recyclable materials like polyethylene, steel, wood and rubber. Components and assembly have been designed to facilitate the “debuilding” and the re-use of the parts after the lend of the life span of the product.
The paint industry really moved forward towards sustainability compared with the past. Infact, they have introduced water based paints. But nowadays that is not enough! Most of the water paints are still produced with a fossil base. Legnolandia today has adopted a revolutionary technology to replace the fossil based components with renewable materials, reducing furthermore the environmental impact without sacrificing the performance. We use bio paints which come from vegetable raw materials (waste from the agri-food industry) not in competition with the human food to color some of our products. This makes the difference with those manufacturers who use the synthetic paints and glazes which have high dangerous emissions. The quality brand "Decovery" grants the sustainability of the paints that we use for the benefit of our children and for the whole planet.
Legnolandia carries out special wood treatments through technologies which use cycles and environmentally friendly substances with respect for the environment and the people. Thanks to these treatments we offer the maximum guarantee of durability of the wood, even if that is exposed to the most hostile weather conditions. Contact us for special wood treatments
