In 2019, Södra opened its first cross-laminated timber (CLT) facility at Värö and has continued to strengthen its position in solid wood construction. We see major potential for value-added wood products in this area, with strong and growing demand. Compared with concrete, using CLT for construction has many benefits including lower CO₂ emissions, lighter transportation and shorter construction times. Read more about CLT here.
Södra is participating in several research projects to explore the potential of wood, both for competence building and to find new solutions. Södra also plays an active role in the Centre for Timber Construction and Housing (CBBT). An overall objective here is to promote timber as a construction material, timber in combination with other materials and timber building systems.
