Jardan embraces the sustainable practices in manufacturing

Jardan creates responsible furniture and lighting with a deep connection to the Australian way of life based on sustainable practices, with manufacturing headquarters in Melbourne, show rooms across four states and another about to open.

Proudly family owned and Australian made, Jardan is leading the way in sustainable furniture manufacturing. Jardan’s pieces are ‘made for life’, with carefully selected materials whose value can endure as long as possible, whilst also considering their end-of-life outcomes. From design, through manufacturing and after sales, sustainability and traceability is prioritised and tracked to create a quality product whilst minimising ecological impact.

Sustainable solutions to reduce production waste

Whilst consciously looking for ways to minimise impact of manufacturing waste, Jardan has already found a mattress supplier to take textile filling for mattresses, community projects for leather scraps and a third party who can safely use MDF as fuel to dry timber.

Seeing an opportunity to reduce timber waste produced during the manufacturing process, Jardan’s Operations Manager, Marcus Downie, sought advice from CEMAC technologies . After a site visit, CEMAC technologies’ sales manager, Jonathan Tan, assisted in building a business case for the two main waste outputs of the manufacturing warehouse, which are soft timber and plywood cut-offs or MDF, both around 200mm in size.

Jardan ultimately chose to work with CEMAC technologies not only because of their experience in timber and wood waste management, but because their company values closely aligned with Jardan’s vision. CEMAC technologies offered local support, a wider network in the recycling industry and a strong relationship with the overseas manufacturer, WEIMA. Throughout the process, Marcus felt Jardan was able to “treat CEMAC technologies as a collaborator not as a supplier”.

Unbeatable duo: WEIMA WL4 Shredder and TH714 briquette press

Two WEIMA WL4 shredders and a TH714 briquette press were presented to meet Jardan’s requirements. With up to two rows of knives and aggressive material feed, WEIMA’s WL4 shredder guarantees high through-put with low power requirements. Flexible, interchangeable screens, mean the same shredder model is suitable for both the soft timber throughput of 150kg/h, which needed an optimal screen size of 10/12mm for briquetting and the plywood cut-offs throughput of 250kg/h and larger screen size 20/25mm.

Jardan’s next focus is to improve their non-burnable timber management and tackle soft plastic waste created during material cutting and transport, turning to CEMAC technologies once again as a trusted partner for recycling solutions.
