Act&Sorb’s mission is to develop the greenest commercial recycling solutions for hard to recycle or non-recyclable waste streams such as MDF. As pollutants in our water, air and soil are impacting the planet, we’ve created a process that converts MDF into a high value material that helps make our world cleaner. A process that turns one industry’s waste into the other’s raw material.
MDF is an extremely versatile wood product with countless applications: from kitchen cabinets, to laminate flooring and much more. Each year, over 70 million tons of new MDF is produced worldwide. With a lack of recycling options, manufacturing cut-offs and end-of-life MDF is incinerated or dumped as landfill. Now, Act&Sorb’s groundbreaking recycling process creates value from bio-based MDF and helps furniture manufacturers and waste collectors contribute to the circular economy, and comply with increasingly stringent legislation.
The need to conserve our resources is driving legislation worldwide to recycle. Newly emerging technical solutions – such as Act&Sorb’s unique, proprietary solution – are setting the pace in recycling more waste than ever before. At the same time, pollutants in the air and water are threatening life as we know it. The Act&Sorb technology turns MDF waste into high quality activated carbon that is essential for treating polluted air, water and soil.
Act&Sorb is the first company to have developed a sustainable and value-adding process for re-cycling MDF. MDF waste is converted into high value activated carbon that helps provide our planet with clean air, clean water. The Excess heat is re-used or converted into green energy.
