Bio-circular wooden materials and innovative alternatives

7th Forest & Wood Innovation Forum · Swiss Krono plant · Wittstock/Dosse

The wood and wood-based materials industry is becoming increasingly important when it comes to reducing emissions in construction. Because wood is not only a renewable raw material but also functions as a deposit for carbon dioxide. With a view to realizing circular solutions, innovations have been increasing in recent times.

Plastic-free wood-based material innovations without synthetic binders

Of particular interest is the large number of materials in which no synthetic polymers and binders are used. In the long term, these will allow cellulose-based resources to circulate in the biological cycle.

In addition, all the innovations are particularly interesting from start-ups that provide material alternatives to wood-based materials. Whether board material based on fish scales, coconut fibers and tannins, fiber boards made from algae or those of agricultural residues, the large number of entrepreneurial activities in this area is remarkable.

At the invitation of Ulf Leonhard Hon.-Prof. Dr. Sascha Peters will present some of the most exciting innovations in circular wood and wood substitute materials at the 7th Forest & Wood Innovation Forum.
