From plant to panel

Strategic merger between IMPACT and Nova Lignum

Plant residue as high quality façade cladding

It nearly sounds too green to be true, but Nova Lignum developed its durable façade cladding just from plant residue. Aubergine fibres, grass from roadside clippings, or wood chips, it all appears to be perfectly suitable as raw materials for Ceranex sidings.

'With bio-mimicry you get inspiration from nature, which has often already thought up solutions to problems which we still have to discover.'

Our production process can be compared to the fossilisation of old wood in the ground, under the influence of minerals. Nova Lignum copies this process with plant fibres above ground.

Massive quantities of plant residue

Plant residue from greenhouses forms a massive mountain of waste, which is usually composted or burnt. But plant residue also comprises a lot of precious energy and valuable fibres. And that is a perfect raw material! For Nova Lignum this was the starting point for product development which eventually resulted in Ceranex façade cladding.
