# Wood fibres

Wood fibres are produced from wood chips, originating from unprocessed log wood. During production, the wood chips are fibrillated under high mechanical pressure, the result is a splinter-like and slightly coarser material. This high temperature is also important to obtain wood fibres that are free from plant diseases.

Wood fibres are often used as raw materials in, for instance, potting soil, paper, and cardboard. On the one hand, it is seen as a sustainable raw material, and on the other hand, it is also a raw material with specific properties.
