Feasibility report – recycling wood waste from office stripouts (Edge Environment)
A feasibility report by Edge Environment that demonstrates how a recycled timber product made from discarded office furniture could soon be used in Sydney offices rather than dumped in landfill.
Edge Environment partnered with the Better Buildings Partnership to conduct this innovative study. It focused on demonstrating cost-effective solutions for problem waste streams for the office fitout sector. The study identified the largest component of stripout waste is engineered timber. This study has led them to the ground-breaking research being carried out by the UNSW SMaRT Centre where wood waste from office furniture is being transformed into new wood composite panels.
