Solvay and Accsys strengthen collaboration to accelerate marketing of sustainable Accoya wood

Solvay and Accsys Technologies PLC have strengthened their cooperation agreement to accelerate the development and marketing of Accoya, a high performance wood, ideal for outdoor use and challenging applications due to a technology that modifies sustainably sourced timber through a process called acetylation.

Under the terms of this agreement, Accsys will gradually double the existing manufacturing capacity at Accsys’ site in Arnhem, the Netherlands, to 80,000 cubic meters per year, funded in part by a loan from Solvay. Solvay has obtained rights to market Accoya as of January 1, 2016, concentrating on 22 countries, with Accsys providing sales and marketing services to Solvay.

"Accoya wood matches or exceeds the durability and dimensional stability of the best tropical hardwoods and has been certified repeatedly for its sustainability," said Philippe Rosier, President of Solvay Acetow. "This strengthened agreement with Accsys fits perfectly with Solvay’s commitment to respond challenge of resource scarcity and the promotion of use of materials that can be recycled."

As a result of the increased manufacturing capacity in Arnhem, sales are expected to be achieved for Accoya in a faster timescale than would otherwise be possible.

Sourced from sustainable FSC certified wood, Accoya is based upon acetylated wood technology which modifies the chemical structure of natural wood and makes it more resistant to water and fungous.
