What is Kebony?
Kebony is the only sustainable alternative to tropical hardwood when beauty and performance are essential.
Developed in Norway, the Kebony technology is an environmentally friendly, patented process, which enhances the properties of sustainable softwood with a bio-based liquid. The process permanently modifies the wood cell walls giving Kebony premium hardwood characteristics and a rich brown colour.
Suitable for interior and exterior applications that demand high performance and a refined look, Kebony is available in clear and character grade. After exposure to sun and rain the wood develops a natural silver-gray patina. Performance is maintained while beauty is enhanced.
Recognised as a Technology Pioneer by the World Economic Forum and four times Global Cleantech 100 listing, Kebony has been embraced by leading international architects and developers, which are served through a global sales and distribution network.
For years, human activity and industrialization have been altering the amount of carbon naturally found in the Earth’s atmosphere. In fact, industrial processes are responsible for releasing 15 percent of the world’s carbon dioxide emissions each year. Although countless industries are responsible for this altered state, the construction industry is making headway in the race to solve this global issue.
The green building trend is gaining momentum around the world in both the commercial and residential sectors. Some countries have even begun enforcing green building mandates for certain construction features such as green roofs and cement.
Managing supply chains in the construction industry can be very challenging, but certain choices in logistical planning can help avoid pain points. New sustainable materials and technologies are helping to mitigate common issues and guide responsible sourcing in the right direction for better green building.
