European Association of
fibre drum manufacturers

Source of Materials



 Fibre drums are manufactured from natural & sustainable softwood products. This wood is grown and managed much like any crop, with new planting for every tree used.


These, fast‐growing softwood trees are very effective at cleaning up CO2 and European softwoods are not grown in place of older more environmentally sensitive hardwoods.


Critically, the production process for the manufacture of fibre drums requires much less energy than is required for melting glass, metals and plastics, with an added benefit of the lightweight nature of fibre drums also reducing the costs involved with handling, transport and use.


At the end of a useful life, the fibre board drum is easily recycled, again at low energy levels – either back into board materials for packaging, as a useful fuel or as a naturally stable, compostable material.
