Awarded the Phenix Award for excellence in environmental protection and sustainability Tafisa was chosen, by a panel of experts, from a list of 35 companies for the success of its landmark wood recycling technology, called Rewood.

Following a CA$5.4m upgrade, Tafisa was able to increase the post-consumer recycled wood fibre content in its panel production, enabling the company to recycle 244,000 tons of diverted wood each year – the equivalent of about two million trees.

Tafisa was also chosen by the public for the Phenix People’s Choice award. Last spring 3,500 people voted on line for their favorite project. The Rewood wood recyling technology by Tafisa was the project that received the most votes.
