In Agrona we make wood panels, from agriresidues, without cutting a single tree.
We are not only protecting forests, but we also save the earth gruesome amount of GHGs emissions by stopping burning agricultural residues, to turn them into wood panels to be used in furniture and Construction applications. Here is a quick demo how the process goes: the agri-waste are collected by our suppliers, to be left to dry in the open air, milled to small particles, packed in bales and shipped to our facility. In our facility we mix these raw materials with chemical resins and some products with bio-based resins ( starch emulsion ) then to dry this mixture while thermal pressing and finally we get the board in shape which complies with the European standards. Boards are recyclable also this business could be replicated in most of African countries as we plan to expand our business in future.
