Ecospecifier certification for eco-friendly wood treatment

Arch Wood Protection (SA), a Lonza company and a leading supplier of wood preservation chemicals in South Africa, is seeing steady growth in demand for Tanalised™ E pressure treated wood as environmental considerations become more important in construction and many other sectors. Tanalised E wood is pressure treated with Arch’s advanced Tanalith™ E wood preservative.  Last year, Tanalised™ E pressure treated wood received a product assessment certificate from the Ecospecifier Global organisation. This certification confirms that the product has undergone rigorous assessments and can be considered to contribute to the achievement of Green Building ratings credits. Architects and other professionals concerned with Green Star ratings can find out more about the ecospecifier assessments and findings on Tanalised E pressure treated wood on the ecospecifier website.  Gerard Busse, marketing manager at Arch Wood Protection, says, “Given the growing interest in Green Star certification in South Africa, Tanalised E pressure treated wood offers professionals additional options in specifying treated wood products. In South Africa, the wood is sourced from Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) certified plantations before it is treated at the timber supply companies.
