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.

In an article for Sustainable Chicago Magazine, Kebony’s CEO Christian Jebsen discusses the three immediate actions that can be implemented to lead the effort to reduce carbon emissions.

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.

Kebony’s International Director of Sales Adrian Pye recently spoke with Construction Global about the five factors responsible for green architecture’s success and how they work together to generate real benefits for home and building owners. From lifecycle cost to aesthetics, Adrian explores why architects should consider green building feature in all projects.

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.
