Wood saving our planet
Great film about how sustainable forestry, modern wood technology and efficient use of materials can improve the climate - a BOKU contribution to the European Bioeconomy University.
Wood in automotive engineering
This feasibility study was initated to create the basis for the WoodC.A.R. research project. The documentary film shows the research work on Magna's CULT concept car.
Projekt Susbind: Sustainable binder
Within the Susbind project we develop reactive components and formaldehyde free adhesives based on plant carbohydrates for particleboard application. Via our partner Wood K plus (https://wood-kplus.at/) we contribute to the unique Susbind consortium consisting of leading partners from industry and academia.
Efficient wood use
A "Plea for the efficient use of wood in construction" was published at the beginning of 2023 in Nature Reviews Materials, one of the world's most important journals in materials science.
WoodC.A.R. - Computer Aided Research
With the 4-year research project (budget: 5 million EUR), vehicle components made of wood hybrid materials were developed using computer-aided methods.
Most cited paper
With our article “Technological performance of formaldehyde-free adhesive alternatives for particleboard industry” we rank among the most cited articles of the International Journal of Adhesion and Adhesives within the last years. This comprehensive open access review gives an overview about the technology readiness of adhesive alternatives for the wood panel industry.
