Manufacturing of environmentally friendly particleboards from wood waste

Wood waste is normally used for production of biofuel and incinerated. From environmental point of view it is favorable to recover the material instead of just recover the energy. The study aims at investigating the possibilities to use wood waste as a raw material for production of environmentally friendly particle boards and thus increase the overall recovery of material from waste. Within the project wood chips, produced at NSR, will be characterized and used in boards, together with environmentally friendly binders (TF-resin, PMDI) will be used. The aim is to produce particle boards from wood waste with low emissions of formaldehyde. The physical and mechanical properties of the boards as well as the release of formaldehyde will be determined. The investigations will be conducted at NSR, Helsingborg and at the University of Göttingen, Germany and led by professor Mahmood Hameed, who has a long record of research concerning production of particle boards (see attached CV)
