Our production process is designed to have minimal impact on the environment. Over the years, Kährs has introduced a number of manufacturing and flooring innovations that have enabled a more responsible, green production. We work hard to reduce our impact to nature, in terms of air quality, water discharge and noise control, to the benefit of our employees and neighbours.
Back in 1984, Kährs was the first wood flooring manufacturer to utilize a water-based lacquer system to reduce emissions. Kährs meets European E1, Eo and California Air Resources Board – Airborne Toxic Control Measure (CARB-ATCM) Phase 1 and 2 standards.
At our production plant in Nybro, nothing goes to waste. The portion of the logs that we’re not able to use for floor production are turned into biofuel. Some of this fuel is used to heat our own facilities. The rest goes to a local energy company. About 45,000 people in our neighbourhood enjoy the warmth of our recycled wood.
