European wood-based panel manufacturers have endorsed the launch of a self-commitment to accept MDF and plywood waste material at their woodwaste management centres or within their plants.

The companies, members of the European Panel Federation (EPF), made the endorsement at the EPF AGM in Riga on June 19-21.

EPF says it is proud of its members’ use of recovered wood and recycled wood. This is part of EPF’s sustainability approach, which sees cascade use and recycling as a key contribution to resource efficiency and circular economy, and is central to wood-based panels as a role model industry.
