2023 German Sustainability
Design Award Finalist
Nominated by the jury of the competition were HERADESIGN® wood wool Micro surfaced acoustic panels.
The jury's justification statement highlighted how the single-layered, magnesite-bound HERADESIGN® Micro wood wool acoustic panel is produced according to a zero-waste concept.
It means that all waste resulting in the course of the production process is directly recycled. For instance, the sawdust from cutting the logs serves as the base for the visible, hard panel surface.
Using its recalcination system, Knauf Ceiling Solutions can reuse up to 50% of the binding agent from old panels and off-cuts.
As a result, it saves resources and reduces waste. The recycling process involves our customers removing installation off-cuts.
It demonstrates consistent and sustainable thinking: an exciting image by which Knauf Ceiling Solutions motivates the industry to rethink sustainability.
Carsten Pohl will participate in the award ceremony in December on behalf of Knauf Ceiling Solutions.
Since 2020, the German Sustainability Design Award has honoured products, systems and services from companies which lead the way with good examples of consistent sustainable design.
The awarded designs guide the search for sustainable alternatives and greatly contribute to the change towards a more sustainable society.
