From summer 2018, a new, state-of-the-art wood fiber plant in our factory will complement the selection of renewable raw materials. (…) Green waste, which is delivered from the surrounding area, is expertly composted by us and, like most of our other raw materials, is RAL quality assured.” www.eifel-holz.eu
