We were delighted to host a visit from Israeli wood recycler Ben Yavnieli, chief executive of waste wood recycling company EDEN, at our site in Manchester.
Ben is currently touring the UK with his wife to learn about how we recycle waste wood into sustainable products. His trip includes visits to various commercial and charity-based wood recycling organisations in the UK, including our own site in Manchester.
Hadfield MD Geoff Hadfield said: “It was great to meet Ben and to hear about how wood recycling is an emerging market in Israel. He has some fantastic ideas and I was pleased to be able to answer his questions about how we do things in the UK.”
EDEN was established in 2014. Ben said: “Our next challenge is to scale-up production and marketing of wood-waste recycled products. We believe biggest potential at the moment is particle-board production – bringing back this industry to Israel, after 18 years, this time on a recycled source version.”
