Towards a Fossil Free Chemical Industry
The environment is at the heart of what we do. We are committed to sourcing our wood from certified forests, we use only natural elements such as water, steam and heat to extract the pine chemicals, and no part of the tree is wasted. Our vision is to help transform the chemical sector with our aspirational goal of achieving a fossil-free chemical industry.
Sourced from FSC Forests
We use only sustainable renewable FSC certified plantation forests that are farmed on a 30 year cycle. This means for every tree that we use, another one is planted.
Our waste products are water and spent wood. The water goes into irrigating our farm and the waste wood can go into making wood pellets that replace coal in heating and power generation plants.
We use parts of the tree, such as stumps which would normally be considered a waste product/low value wood. Stump harvesting improves the productivity of the land as it encourages reforestation.
For every 1kg of product we produce, that’s 1kg of petroleum products that doesn't get pumped out of the ground. Our products directly replace petrochemical sourced products in the marketplace.
We extract pine chemicals using only low heat, low pressure, water, steam and a natural organic solvent. We don’t use any petrochemicals in the extraction process resulting in clean pine rosin and turpenes.
To further reduce the carbon footprint associated with the supply chain, our facilities are located in areas that minimize transportation from forest to plant to port. We operate in the most attractive wood fiber regions in AU.
