OrganoWood is a privately owned company formed in 2010 by OrganoClick AB and Kvigos AB. The company sells and markets environmentally friendly modified timber and complementary surface treatment products.
The company bases its activities on its core technology where silicon based substances are bound to the fibres in the wood via organic catalysis. The unique OrganoWood® technology has been developed with inspiration from the natural fossilization process where minerals penetrate and mineralise organic materials. Technology is based on scientific breakthroughs in methods for modifying biofibres. Using the technology, silicon substances are bound to the wood fibres under high pressure in the same way as usual pressure impregnation. Penetration of the liquid occurs in the sapwood to create optimal protection. The patented modification of the timber gives an environmentally classified timber and creates and environment where wood-decay fungi do not thrive.
OrganoWood® timber is approved for the construction of Nordic Swan Ecolabelled houses and buildings.
