Brief description of expertise
Design, improvement and characterization of wood based materials, such as: particleboard, fiber-boards, oriented strand board (OSB), wood based mineral panels (cement bonded particleboard, wood wool cement panels, wood based gypsum boards etc), as well as other ligno-cellulose materials (i.e. strawboard). Testing and certification of wood based panels. Development of new materials based on wood particles as fillers and thermoplastic polymers as matrix. Development of pre-treatments and processes in chemical wood processing. Cellulose and paper. Production of wood bio-ethanol. Analysis of chemical composition of wood and chemical modification of wood tissue. Accessory materials in wood processing and their application. Investigation of wood adhesives and methods for adhesion improvement on wood substrates. Development of wood based products with improved fire- and water-resistant properties. Air- and hydro-pollution control in wood processing. Production and characterization of wood nano-cellulose particles.
