Gryfskand's production process is unique in many ways. For one, Gryfskand don't use any fossil fuels in the production process, since the production of charcoal is exothermic. FSC-certified wood is a renewable energy source, and over the years Gryfskand has learned how to use this energy effectively. The manufacturing of charcoal is a closed natural cycle where the distillation of charcoal produces gases which are then mixed with oxygen for combustion. The gases are combusted in a chamber and transformed into energy. Gryfskand has developed a deep understanding of energy and we use the transformed energy for various purposes, such as the power for our offices and buildings, briquette production, hot water for our facilities, electricity for heating, etc. Gryfskand also supplies neighboring businesses with energy, thus reducing the total amount of fossil fuels used.
Forest Stewardship Council (FSC®)
The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC®) is an international organization that brings people together to find solutions which promote responsible stewardship of the world?s forests.
Its product label allows consumers worldwide to recognize products that support the growth of responsible forest management worldwide. In Poland only about 70% of the yearly growth of the forests is being harvested. De facto, it means that Polish forests experience continuous growth. If all the world's forests were managed as well as those in Poland, to the FSC®(FSC-C011554) standards, wood production could increase by 40% without any decline in forest areas.
