“My aim with Sioo:x is for us to provide by far the best wood protection on the international market. A number of parameters are involved, and just like our wood protection should be a natural product and should act like nature’s own wood protection does, with all its advantages, we should also offer an economically sustainable product – regardless of where in the world wooden constructions are being built, and regardless of the construction technique and wood type being used. This is essential for us to be competitive and take a leading position”
Wood is scientifically well understood, and there are many advantages in changing our approach and building both skyscrapers and smaller family homes in wood.
“Wood has many environmental advantages because it’s a renewable material that grows through photosynthesis, which leads to carbon dioxide being absorbed from the atmosphere – ultimately counteracting the greenhouse effect. The industry needs to adopt a new approach, and the consumption of finite raw materials must be drastically reduced while we must simultaneously actively reduce our energy use.
Wood is also a cost-effective material, and in industrial construction cost savings can be made on the basis of a total economic perspective, low weight and fast final assembly, leading to increasing numbers of architects and project owners choosing wood for even larger construction projects.
Sioo Wood Protection has and will continue to focus strongly on research and development in the form of innovation projects within the EU such as Horizon 2020. We will also continue our own self-financed research aimed at becoming a leading actor that strives to make it possible for societies all over the world to make the move to sustainable construction in wood.”
