The genesis of the Green Energy project

In Sully-sur-Loire (Loiret), Swiss Krono France, a manufacturer of wood-based products, has identified a triple challenge:

  • Reducing dust emissions, in line with European regulations (BREF)
  • Reduction of its energy consumption
  • Its active participation in the decarbonisation of the industry

The company aims to increase its production capacity for Oriented Strand Board (OSB), a key material in the development of wood construction. In this context, Swiss Krono France has joined forces with Dalkia, a specialist in energy performance for low-carbon industry, and Meridiam, a leader in biomethane production and biomass energy recovery, to decarbonise its plant.

Green Energy in 3 min krono

The Green Energy project is a decarbonisation programme through industrial and energy transformation carried out in Sully-sur-Loire by Swiss Krono France, Dalkia in the Centre-Ouest region and Meridiam.

In a true spirit of sustainability and circularity, the project aims to install two new dryers on the Swiss Krono France factory site, powered by a biomass unit and a smoke condenser, to improve productivity.

  • 35,000 t of fossil CO2 avoided per year thanks to the biomass unit
  • 5% to 10% reduction in energy requirements thanks to the low temperature dryers
  • Between 80% and 95% of the gas consumed by the site replaced by biomass
  • >100 M€ of investment
  • 2 times winner of the France Relance plan
  • 2 years of work
