Power Generation

The energy created from our power plant is not only used in our own processes, it also supplies district heating for around 4,000 households and public buildings. Without the need for individual heating systems we're able to make serious contributions to saving the environment. With annual investments of € 25 million, we've been able to reduce emissions by 30% to date. The company in St.Veit an der Glan has been living the trend towards clean energy for a long time: 85% of the fuel used is biomass - surplus wood from other production processes, as well as wood waste or wood chips. All fuels are carefully and consistently controlled. Due to our sophisticated flue gas purification system, we ensure that any emissions during our combustion processes are kept to a minimum.

FunderMax Biofaser

With our Biofaser panel, FunderMax has created and continues to develop materials which are almost entirely made from natural and renewable raw materials. The ingredients are fresh wood, natural resins, energy from renewable fuels and the know-how of a qualified and experienced team. Together, this results in panels that guarantee healthy living and working environments. Even at the end of their lifespan, these panels can be safely returned to the wood recycling process.
