Neverwaste™ is a patented material made entirely from vast quantities of waste cardboard and packaging that would otherwise be burned or landfilled. By refining and modifying the fibres of manmade cardboard derived from virgin and recycled timber, Neverwaste™ avoids the use of glues, resins or toxic chemicals in the production of a healthy, premium-specification material for use in construction, furniture, kitchens and flooring.
State of the art factory using 100% renewable energy in Jutland, Denmark, to produce 160,000m3 of high performance panel boards for the furniture and construction industries
The start of a global factory network
Transforms waste into high value products in a pure circular economy process
Neverwaste™ is designed for the new sustainable world we need to build, helping to slow climate change by preventing the destruction of millions of trees to make products with short lifespans.
Every Neverwaste™ factory is a micro-world of regeneration and restoration, inspired by the reality that just about everything human beings will ever need can be beautifully made from the raw materials already in circulation on our planet.
In partnership with like-minded investors we are rolling out a multi-factory platform to realise our vision at scale. Neverwaste™ is a sustainable circular economy solution to the planet’s insatiable consumption of panel boards.
Rod Fountain, CEO of Unwasted at the GreenLab site
“I am proud to represent a large group of Danish industrialists who have made a multi-million pound investment in the Neverwaste™ parent company Unwasted™ to support its global commercialisation programme, starting with a major plant at GreenLab Skive, Denmark.”
Bertel Gantriis, Director (Denmark)
The world consumes 584 million m3 of wood-based panel products every year
Around 3.8 billion m3 of timber is felled annually, reducing the world’s forest cover by 3.3 million hectares each year
Averting a climate catastrophe requires urgent action to re-forest our world
Humans are generating vast mountains of waste with cardboard and paper making up 41% of the solid waste stream
In the US alone more than 850 million tonnes of waste packaging is thrown away annually, equating to about 1 billion trees
The average household throws away 13,000 separate pieces of cardboard every year
One Neverwaste™ plant converts 140,000 tonnes of waste cardboard into 160,000m3 of panel boards every year, saving 170,000 trees and 150,000 tonnes of CO2
Generating £75 million of revenue and creating 100 green jobs directly and many more in the supply chain for every Neverwaste™ factory
Over ten years a global network of Neverwaste™ plants will save millions of trees, reduce the waste that goes to landfill or incineration, and save millions of tonnes of CO2

Neverwaste has borrowed from nature's deep design model: not wasting a single atom whilst creating the conditions for all life to thrive. Her beautiful design is regenerative, and so are we - always working on behalf of the next generation. Our factories will follow the principle of ancient forests, creating regenerative ecosystems where nothing is wasted.
