1 Egger Timberpak Your waste wood solution.

2 Timberpak. A recycling and reprocessing brand that never stands still. For over 15 years Timberpak has sourced waste wood for the EGGER UK chipboard production sites. As the largest user of recycled timber in the UK wood panel industry, EGGER has an ongoing requirement for waste wood. We therefore never turn waste wood away at our Timberpak Yorkshire, Timberpak North East and Timberpak Scotland sites. Timberpak is a subsidiary to the EGGER Group. 2 3

3 Egger. A brand that stands for quality, but never stands still. For over 50 years the name EGGER has been synonymous with standards of production that lead the way in wood based panels manufacturing. We are ISO 9001 certified, which highlights our commitment to quality and ISO certified, which highlights our environmental commitment as an organisation. Across our 17 state-of-the-art European manufacturing facilities we are constantly developing new products that provide our customers with key benefits and high quality. Here in the UK we ve created a portfolio of products for the furniture and construction markets that lead the way in both innovation and quality. 4 5

4 Helping customers Our success is based on excellent service. We provide continuity and reliability for our customers, whether you are a large furniture group, a civic amenity site or an industrial user. As a safe pair of hands for your waste wood, we offer peace of mind with all three Timberpak sites certified to ISO9001 for our quality management system, ISO14001 for our environmental management system and BS OHSAS for our occupational health and safety system. Flexibility For greater customer flexibility we offer two services that cover a wide range of timber products that are free from any material that may contain Halogenated Organic Compounds or heavy metals resulting from the treatment of wood preservatives or coating. *See our Specification sheet (page 11) for the full list of acceptable material types. 1. Collection service A fleet of specialist vehicles collect from customers sites along the M62 corridor, across the North East and from the central belt of Scotland. These vehicles include hook loader, waste ejector and curtain sided vehicles. Timberpak Scotland Timberpak North East We collect all waste wood within a 25 mile radius of each of our Timberpak Yorkshire, Timberpak North East and Timberpak Scotland sites. *We can also arrange collection of palletised / bulky waste wood nationwide through our third party hauliers. Timberpak Yorkshire 2. Material acceptance For those customers who wish to bring their own waste wood to our sites. 6 7

5 Benefitting Customers Even if we can t use all of your waste wood (for recycling and using in chipboard production) we can still collect, grade and deliver to the most appropriate outlet. (MDF would be an example of waste wood that we cannot utilise, but could sort for you). Potential benefits to you Save money compared to your current, waste wood option. Saves paying landfill taxes. May be more convenient. Takes away the headache of having to find sources to take your waste wood. Environmental benefits We can process quality post consumer waste wood (not high in contaminents) at our timber recycling plants. As the wood is drier than virgin fibre it requires less energy to dry and process and thus reduces CO 2. Recycling wood, rather than burning or sending it to landfill represents better utilisation of the raw materials and locks in CO 2. Using recycled timber in the production of chipboard means that less virgin fibre is required, thus helping the environment. This ensures that waste wood is processed and disposed of in the most environmentally friendly manner, by those services best able to handle it. 8 9

6 UN Material Groups What you need to know. Wood entering the waste stream can be placed into five grades, A, AC, B, C and CA. The material we can accept is grouped together in an easy to understand specification sheet which follows the 5 grades: Grade A- for all packaging wood, items used to contain, support, carry, enclose, wrap or protect. From construction, manufacturing, distribution, warehousing and engineering. Grade AC for all pre consumer solid and man-made wood items from the manufacturing process (no MDF). Grade B for all solid untreated natural timber products from construction sites, demolition companies, skip firms or transfer stations. Grade C for all mixed wood sources natural and man-made (no MDF). Grade CA- for all waste wood from civic amenity sites. GRADE A - PACKAGING MAterials Wooden packaging Pallets / packing crates / boxes / cable drums / stillages / bearers / any solid timber / plywood packaging. un (contamination) Any non packaging wood / any MDF / any non wood items. GRADE AC PRE CONSUMER WOOD Production woodworking, sawdust, off cuts Plywood / chipboard / solid wood / off cuts & sheet material from manufacturing. un (contamination) All MDF (including hardboard / laminate flooring) / any non wood items. GRADE B SOLID MIXED WOOD Production woodworking, sawdust, off cuts Wooden packaging ; Construction & Demolition Wood from Skip companies All grade A wood All solid untreated timber Solid doors / roof trusses / floor boards / window frames / door frames / skirting / architraves Painted wood (non lead based paints). un (contamination) All MDF (including hardboard / laminate flooring) All chipboard (melamine faced / laminated) Cardboard /felt / tar / rubber / polythene / plasterboard /soil / foliage / twigs / bricks / glass / plastic /foam / textiles Railway sleepers / telegraph poles / treated timber. GRADE C - LOW GRADE Production woodworking, sawdust, off cuts ; Wooden packaging Construction & Demolition ; Wood from Skip companies Municipal / Industrial All grade A wood All grade B wood Man-made wood, OSB / plywood / end of life chipboard (plain / melamine faced / laminated). un (contamination) MDF / hardboard / laminate flooring Railway sleepers / telegraph poles Treated timber green waste / trees /bushes Any non wood items.

7 Timberpak and the environment 100% assurance that nothing goes to landfill. Timberpak, as part of the EGGER Group, pursues a far reaching environmental policy. Producing waste is a fact of life. However, by managing what we do with it, we make a significant environmental contribution. Managing waste in a sustainable way, optimising recycling and re-use, as well as limiting production, forms part of Government policy to protect the environment. The waste hierarchy diagram shows that sending timber waste to landfill should be the last option. Not only is it increasingly expensive but re-use and recycling are much more sustainable methods. Prevention Most favoured options Minimisation Re-use Least favoured options Recycling Energy recover Disposal Whereas burning wood releases CO2, chipboard production locks carbon away for the lifetime of the product and adds value to the wood. As part of the EGGER Group we reduce CO₂ Through the processing of wood in EGGER products, annually 5.1 million tonnes of CO₂* are stored; this corresponds to the CO₂ emission from 900,000 households**. Through the use of recycled wood residues we save the environment 1.56 million tonnes of CO₂ per year, and through our biomass power plants we annually achieve saving of 746,000 tonnes of CO₂ in comparison to the combustion of natural gas. 1m 3 spruce wood locks 825 kg CO₂ 1m 3 raw chipboard locks 1,100 kg CO₂ Calculated from the 02/2010 EGGER EPDs based on GWP 100 production. * Established from the greenhouse potential of the EGGER EPDs (GWP 100 in kg CO₂ equivalent, cradle-to-grave) on the basis of the production figures 2013/14) ** An average European household with four people generates approximately 5.7 tonnes of CO₂ per year, source: according to EUROSTAT 22/

8 The sustainability cycle Starting with the collection of timber from renewable forests and wood residues from sawmills, to the generation of energy through environmentally friendly production techniques and finally, through to the continual monitoring of emissions, very little waste is generated during the manufacturing of wood based panels, as almost all by-products are used, whether as a raw material, or as an energy source. When timber is harvested from the forest it is usually delivered to a sawmill and the parts of the tree that cannot be used by the sawmilling industry (e.g. the tops) can be used by EGGER. Furthermore the off-cuts and sawdust generated from the sawmills when they produce sawn timber can then also be used by EGGER. EGGER and the wood using industries in general advocate that wood should be recycled within products, recycled, used again, etc. until it has no further use other than a source of energy. And only then should it be burnt. Respecting this use and hierarchy of wood ensures that carbon is stored for longer, which, of course, is better for the environment
