Unscrupulous logging to satisfy the world’s insatiable hunger for timber is rapidly destroying primary forests. With this the depletion of plant and animal life is in an alarming situation globally. Unless immediate efforts are made to address this grave phenomenon, the effects of climate change and its consequences will remain irreversible.
In our efforts to help reduce overall carbon footprints and GHG emission, Indigo brings you EVERWOOD, an environmentally friendly product. Left over sawdust from wood processing units and recycled plastic are the primary components of EVERWOOD. Which means no trees are cut specifically and tons of plastics bottles and bags that would otherwise be dumped or burned in landfills releasing harmful gases, go into manufacturing EVERWOOD, a new generation material, WPC (Wood Plastic Composite). EVERWOOD is also completely recyclable.
Like many organisations world over, we will dedicate a lot of our existence to help reduce carbon footprints with consistent improvement in the quality of our composite and thus reduce the emission of GHG, contributing towards slowing climate change. Your choice of WPC over wood will make a big contribution too.
The worlds need for wood is insatiable, and with it millions of hectares of tropical rainforests are being eliminated at an unimaginable pace.
Upto 60% of the raw material that goes into WPC is wood fibre sourced from the recycling industry. Collected from wood processing units and waste, the raw material component for EVERWOOD is a combination of various wood scrap that is painstakingly segregated and processed in grades ensuring the best quality wood dust.
Sourcing raw material this way largely and eventually reduces the demand for felled wood to feed the construction industry’s demand for wood. With the natural look of wood making a comeback globally in architectural features, the use of WPC is a highly sustainable solution in reducing the speed at which rainforests are being depleted.=
The world’s consumption of plastics today leaves behind an unmanageable amount of waste that is most harmful, disposed in the most unethical and disorganized manner and probably the biggest contributor to pollution & waste worldwide.
The resin and plastic component of raw material that constitutes upto 30% or more in EVERWOOD WPC is a combination of recovered & recycled Polypropylene and Polyethylene. Superior quality recycled waste sourced, is a combination of plastic bottles and bags that would normally be dumped in landfills and not degrade releasing toxic and harmful gases into the environment.
Sourcing and the use of recycled plastic raw material in the production of WPC is a large contributor to reducing and slowing the unscrupulous disposal of plastic waste.=
The manufacturing of WPC today has greatly evolved and high quality composite is a result of vastly improved production technology over time.
The sourcing of raw materials for WPC manufacturing consumes waste material rather than leave it behind for disposal. Sophisticated techniques through the entire processing of raw material and final extrusion of WPC virtually leaves behind no waste.
Besides the consumption of power and heating during the production process of WPC which releases carbon, the overall environmental implications through manufacturing is very low. EVERWOOD is manufactured in state of the art and technologically advanced facilities where factory run-off and refuse is minimal and mostly recycled including any waste WPC.=
