Here at Eden Products, we care about the environment and our impact on it. We want to find ways to make our world cleaner and healthier for everyone. In a world where environmental concerns are rapidly rising, finding sustainable and eco-friendly solutions has become a top priority. One solution that’s gaining attention across various industries is wood wool. This wood-based material brings a variety of eco-friendly advantages. Let’s venture into the world of wood wool and discover how it’s making a difference in preserving our planet.

Wood wool is a wood-based material that is produced mechanically. It takes the form of fine strands, measuring up to 500mm in length with a width ranging from 0.15 to 0.2mm. It is derived from both deciduous and coniferous wood, that has been debarked and then air-dried to achieve a moisture content of up to 13%. Wood wool boasts a wide range of applications across diverse industries, making it a versatile and sustainable choice.

Let’s explore some of the key areas where wood wool is making a significant impact:

1. Void Filling and Stuffing

In the packaging industry, wood wool is used for void filling and stuffing. Its fine strands provide excellent cushioning and support, ensuring that fragile items are protected during transit. The elasticity and velocity of wood wool safeguard high-value products from damage, making it an ideal choice for businesses looking to reduce product breakage and returns.

2. Insulation

Wood wool’s insulating properties are highly valued in the construction industry. Not only does it act as an effective thermal insulator, improving energy efficiency, but can also be used as soundproofing in buildings. The natural fibres of wood wool offer an eco-friendly alternative to synthetic insulation materials.

3. Filtration

In some industrial processes, filtration is crucial. Wood wool’s fine fibres are used in filtration systems to capture impurities and particles effectively. Its natural composition ensures that it does not attract fungus or bacteria, maintaining a hygienic environment.

4. Animal Hygiene and Bedding

Wood wool finds a unique application in animal hygiene, particularly for primates that are susceptible to disease. It provides a comfortable and clean bedding solution, minimising the risk of infections. Its excellent absorbency and odour-control properties make it a preferred choice for animal welfare.

5. Udder Milking

Udder wood wool plays a vital role in the milking process. Its hygienic properties are essential to maintaining milk purity. Cleaning the udder before milking not only prevents milk pollution but also stimulates the release of oxytocin, promoting rapid milk delivery. Wood wool contributes to a more efficient, and comfortable udder milking process, benefiting both the animals and the quality of the milk produced.

Udder wood wool is specially manufactured for milking purposes, using softer and finer wood. Here are some compelling reasons to opt for udder wood wool:

  • Cost-Effective: Udder wood wool is a cost-effective solution, as only about 5 grams per procedure are needed. This efficient usage minimises waste and saves money.
  • Natural and Eco-Friendly: Udder wood wool is a completely natural product, making it environmentally friendly. It can be easily disposed of without harming the ecosystem.
  • Hygienically Wrapped: Our super-fine udder wood wool is supplied in 10 kg bales that are wrapped hygienically to ensure that the product remains clean and safe for use.

In a world where sustainability and eco-consciousness are priorities, wood wool provides a compostable and bio-degradable option. Its versatility and eco-friendly nature make it a preferred choice across various industries, from packaging to construction and animal care. By choosing wood wool, we not only enhance the quality of our products but also contribute to the well-being of our planet.
