Wood and Bionanocomposites

Published: 9 March 2011

Research in Wood and Bionanocomposites focuses on increasing the use and exchange of wood material and develop new manufacturing methods for wood and bio-based composites.


The research also involves developing new composite materials such as for furniture,construction or packaging products.

The goal of our business is to manufacture and design new environmentally-friendly materials. We work with composites with thermoplastic biopolymer or as a binder which means that these composites can be easily recycled or composted.
