Cork bottle stoppers are the main production of Amorim (the world leader in cork oak manufacturing and the people behind ReCORK America), yet any remaining materials from the stopper production process are incorporated into other high-value applications such as Wicanders flooring.
Wicanders cork oak floors represent a generations-old balance between environmental conservation, creation of wealth, and social development that benefits millions of people worldwide. Their manufacturing process is practically waste-free. Pieces of cork oak that cannot be incorporated into products are used as biomass and are converted into fuel as an energy source. Therefore, there is no waste and no cork oak residue– nothing is discarded, everything is transformed.
