MVP > Portfolio > Kebony

Kebony produces and markets modified wood based on domestic wood species such as pine. It thus provides an affordable and sustainable alternative to tropical hardwoods and conventionally impregnated timber.

Kebony wood is based on a process in which sustainable wood is made more durable, harder and more stable using liquids produced from biomass. Its extraordinary characteristics include exceptionally good decay resistance, long life span, high mechanical stability and outstanding esthetic appearance. This durability is achieved without the drawbacks associated with traditional impregnation methods, which is shown by the "Swan" eco-label (the official Nordic eco-label).

Kebony is headquartered in Oslo and has its own production facility in Skien (Norway).
