Wood drying can also be energy-efficient - with the right technology

Are drying systems energy-efficient enough as of 2023? Holzkurier asked this question in an online survey in January. The result of the survey: only 30% of participants answered "yes" - 50% answered "no".

This shows that wood drying is still considered an energy-intensive process in the timber industry. And this is understandable, as not all manufacturers of wood drying systems pay attention to the now central issue of energy efficiency and resource conservation. At Mühlböck Holztrocknungstechnik, on the other hand, the optimal utilisation of the energy used plays a key role in the drying process of all wood dryer variants. With its highly efficient heat recovery technology, Mühlböck offers drying systems for the timber industry that save up to 50% in energy consumption compared to conventional systems; and all this with completely identical drying quality.

This is wood drying on a new level.

"We have been proving for decades that wood drying can also be energy-efficient and resource-saving," says Richard Mühlböck, Managing Director of Mühlböck Holztrocknungsanlagen. "We understood early on that we need to minimise the use of resources in wood drying. This head start in research and development is particularly helpful to us today," says Mühlböck.

Whether for drying kilns, channel dryers or belt dryers - a large number of customers already rely on Mühlböck's highly efficient heat recovery technology and can confirm the promised savings, performance and drying quality of the systems.
