The erection and operation of the Plant for the production of  medium-density fiberboard (MDF) and high-density fiberboard (HDF)

Enterprise : Korosten MDF Plant
Investments: Euro 120 m
Plant Area: 40 hectares
Raw Materials: Coniferous roundwood from moderate climate regions with small portion of waste wood (sawdust, chips, lumps of wood, etc.)

Medium-density fiberboard (MDF) is an engineered wood product formed by breaking down softwood into wood fibres, often in a defibrator, combining it with wax and a resin binder, and forming panels by applying high temperature and pressure to the density of 700…870 kg/m³. MDF possesses high water-repellent and ecological compatibility features meeting EN 622-5 European standard requirements. It could be used as a basic material for lamination, matting, veneering and painting.

High-density fiberboard (HDF) is a product made with the same raw materials and technology as MDF but under the higher pressure of the press. As a result the finished product becomes tougher and harder. It could be used as substrate material for laminated flooring.

Ecologically clean production.
Personnel: 800 employees

Project Schedule

Project Launch: July 2008

Completion of Erection: The 3 d quarter of 2010

The Plant has an advantageous geographical location as Korosten is a big rail junction of the South-West rail road net of Ukraine.
