Sustainability Benefits

PEFC -certified raw material

PEFC -certified raw material

Lunawood’s raw material comes from well-managed, sustainable Nordic forests. The average transportation distance is only 235 km, which increases the transparency of our supply chain. In Finland, we only cut 75% of the annual growth and whenever one tree is cut, 10 new ones are seeded. In this way, the forest constantly binds more carbon than it emits.

Prolonged life cycle

Prolonged life cycle

Lunawood has a minimal environmental impact compared to non-renewable materials, chemically treated wood and tropical hardwoods. The thermal modification process gives Lunawood excellent durability, allowing it to act as a long-term storage point of CO₂. The dimensional stability of Lunawood guarantees a long-lasting architectural appearance on decorative surfaces, even without maintenance.

Wood at its purest form

Wood at its purest form

Lunawood Thermowood® is a natural material produced entirely from heat and steam – without any toxins or chemicals. Due to its patented thermal modification, Lunawood Thermowood products are pure, safe, and hygienic for indoor use, even for allergy sufferers who are prone to wood-related reactions. Thanks to the resin-free property, the knots don’t show up through paints or tints, even over time.

Surface treatment-free

Surface treatment-free

Lunawood Thermowood is a truly sustainable product throughout its whole life cycle. The thermal modification alone provides the freedom not to do a separate surface treatment or coating to withstand time and various weather conditions. This fact also makes them a sustainable choice from a cost point of view. This rule applies when the installation is done correctly, according to the official installation instructions.
