Waste Recovery
An essential contribution to the Circular Economy

Our production processes are developed and evaluated, from supply to delivery of the final product, always prioritising the reduction of waste generated and, whenever possible, its recovery in the course of our industrial and logistical operations, with the aim of promoting its circularity.

The categorisation and monitoring of the various waste flows generated in the Vicaima Group's operations makes it possible to optimise their separation and forwarding for recovery through the various waste partners or operators with the aim of their being reused and reintroduced into the value chain, avoiding their final destination being landfill.


96% of all waste generated is recovered

In 2023, recovered waste accounted for 96% of the total waste generated, with wood waste representing a significant proportion and most of which is recovered, either through the production of thermal energy or through its sale, being reintegrated into new products, such as the production of wood-based agglomerates, briquettes, among others, being processed by external entities. One of our main objectives is to consistently ensure that the percentage of waste recovered is above 90% in the 2021-2030 cycle.

In 2023, a total of 4,139 t of waste was generated, a 15% reduction on the previous year. The biggest contribution came from non-hazardous waste, which fell by 646 t (-14%), representing 95.2% of the total waste generated in 2023.



Circular Innovation in the Vicaima Group


The Vicaima Group has adopted the principles of the circular economy as key catalysts for innovation in the development of solutions that create value and boost our commitment to sustainability. Based on the strategic concept of reducing, reusing, recovering and recycling materials and energy, we have set out on a path focused on achieving maximum efficiency in the use of resources and materials and in the management and recovery of waste.

Aware of the scarcity of resources and their impact on the environment and society, the Vicaima Group is focussed on a strategy of continuous improvement that enhances::

  • Improved resource efficiency that allows innovative adaptation and creation of optimised processes for a lower environmental impact
  • Improved material efficiency to reduce the use of natural resources, favouring the use of recycled or renewable materials over virgin raw materials
  • Reducing waste and reusing any that remains
  • Reduction of waste produced and recovery of the remainders through reuse, production of thermal energy or recycling
  • Innovation and development of quality products that guarantee durability, allow for repair and reuse


It should be noted that the main raw material used in the products we manufacture is of renewable or recycled origin, since it essentially refers to wood and its derivatives, which makes them products with great potential to be reused and reintroduced in a circular economy logic.



Use of renewable materials
in a door


As the Vicaima Group is mainly industrial, one of our contributions to reducing our environmental footprint involves increasingly incorporating renewable materials into the products we manufacture, with a high percentage of recycled materials or wood-based materials that ensure maximum performance and high quality standards.

In this context, as an example, find out which renewable materials can be used in the structure of a Vicaima door.
