3A Composites Core Materials Passes the Annual FSC Review and confirms BALTEK SBC as First Carbon-Neutral Core Material in the World

January 04 (2021

Sustainable forest management has ever since been a key element in the wood production of 3A Composites Core Materials. As first supplier of balsa wood core materials from FSC-certified plantations to the market, the company’s Ecuadorian forestry site passed the annual FSC review in November 2020 and proudly looks upon a year of successful strengthening its global activities.

“We are not only pleased to continue supplying the market with our balsa products from sustainable resources but also that our sustainable forestry plan has ensured the availability of prime balsa wood to meet the growing demand of our customers even in this challenging year filled with supply chain concerns,” says Juan Matheus, Global Product Manager BALTEK products. “Passing the annual review, it proves our commitment to the FSC-requirements and that we just believe to do the right thing – not only for the environment but also for the communities we work in and for the standards of the industry.”

Its structural core material BALTEK SBC comes from 100% controlled plantations as 3A Composites Core Materials owns and manages several thousand ha of FSC-certified balsa plantations in Ecuador (FSC-C019065) and Papua New Guinea (FSC-C125018) allowing to be the only one in the market with full traceability of the wood from the seed to the finished good and ensuring the product’s quality from legal plantations. Providing a natural material that is biodegradable, 3A Composites Core Materials contributes to the carbon neutrality efforts of the industries they serve to ensure the circular economy. Its BALTEK SBC is the first carbon-neutral core material in the world capturing more GHG emissions than caused by the production and making therefore a clear positive impact on the climate.
